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. Hastings and Wilson 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.
