Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book is a wonderful introduction to the world of bioluminescent organisms, from bacteria to fungi and animals, through to the technological discoveries and developments for which bioluminescence has been pivotal. Wilson and Hastings are certainly the individuals to bring the whole field together.”Margaret McFall-Ngai, University of Wisconsin–Madison

“Wilson and Hastings have given us a masterful biology lesson showing how addressing a seemingly simple question―how do different organisms produce light?―leads to fascinating natural history, intriguing ecology, and exciting biochemistry. They show how the study of bioluminescence has given us new tools, new insights, and new questions that need to be answered.”Martin Chalfie, winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

“Wilson and Hastings demonstrate that what appears on the surface to be a biological oddity is actually a marvelous entry port into examining the intricacies of biochemistry as molded by evolution. I found this book absolutely captivating.”Jim Morin, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Cornell University

Wilson and Hastings provide an exceptional, scholarly, clear treatment of bioluminescence.
