Anyone who has ever been entranced by a firefly or hypnotized by a glowing jellyfish will agree that bioluminescence—that is, light that is produced by living organisms—is pretty neat. The Bioluminescence Web Page is an excellent website that brings together in one place various tidbits related to bioluminescent creatures, including scientific meetings (yes, there was a meeting on fireflies earlier this year), current museum exhibits, recent publications, and links to other related sites. The site includes a research forum where researchers can discuss their research interests, and it also includes a photo gallery featuring various bioluminescent organisms. Additionally, the site includes an emphasis on education, providing information on the chemical reactions that produce bioluminescence, a discussion of the many uses of bioluminescence, and other content.
