The study of bioluminescence—visible light emitted by living organisms—is truly in progress, as these 35 papers contributed by 49 of the leading scientists active in this field attest. Not since E. Newton Harvey's Bioluminescence in 1952 has there appeared a more comprehensive and critical study. The approaches to the subject range from the purely chemical and physical to the purely biological. There are magnificent electron micrographs and some color plates.
