Since bioluminescence has proven to be an energy-expensive process, the evolution of bioluminescence in nature must be of some ecological or biological significance, or must offer some evolutionary advantage to the organism. This is certainly true, because there are multiple incidences of the evolution of bioluminescence, all completely independent from each other, and showing a convergent evolution pattern [ 4, 5]. This trait is found in multiple species spanning different phyla. Some even show symbiotic association with microbes. All these species use this phenomenon for a diverse range of applications including evasion of predators, luring prey and even attracting mates [ 6, 7, 8].

Every single bottle sold will help us continue our vital work of removing ocean debris, as well as training new volunteers to help us make an even bigger splash in 2022.” • The Kraken Rum unveils its second bottle from the ‘Unknown Deep’ limited-edition series, which was discovered by a crew of brave divers following a close encounter with The Beast itself.

On DreamWorks Animation’s new 3DCG film, giving the titular hero soft, octopus-like curves capable of flexible, fluid movement that still looked slightly alien required designs – and rigs - that were bendable in ways never done at the studio; the movie hits theaters today, June 30.

Dinoflagellates are a group of cosmopolitan protistan organisms [ 29] having an ancient evolutionary history, which form one of the most important groups of phytoplankton in the aquatic ecosystems [ 30]. They are the only photosynthetic organisms that are capable of bioluminescence [ 30], and are the most dominant contributors to the occurrence of this phenomenon in the upper ocean [ 31]. Common phenomena like the “Red Tides” and the bioluminescent bays of Jamaica are because of the dramatic increase in the population of Gonyaulax and other dinoflagellate species. Gonyaulax polyedra is supposedly the most studied dinoflagellate species [ 20]. Other common bioluminescent genera are Ceratium, Protoperidinium, Pyrocystis, Noctiluca, [ 31] and Alexandrianum [ 29]. There have been inaccurate records of bioluminescent dinoflagellate species in the past, because of the presence of both bioluminescent as well as non-bioluminescent strains belonging to the same species. Difference in the ability has been observed even between cells of the same strain [ 31]. PADI AWARE is not only a global movement for ocean protection powered by a community of explorers, but also empowers scuba divers to remove marine debris from the seafloor and report data on the types, quantities and locations of materials collected.Gaston GR, Hall J. Lunar periodicity and bioluminescence of swarming Odontosyllis luminosa (Polychaeta: Syllidae) in Belize. Gulf Caribb. Res. 2000;12(1):47-51 Animation director Carlos Fernandez Puertolas, who has been on the team since a year before production on the film even started , confirms that there was an almost incalculable number of Ruby designs that he sorted through before narrowing down her look. As stated earlier, bioluminescence has emerged independently in nature on multiple occasions. Nearly 700 to 800 genera spanning 13 phyla, including both prokaryotic as well as eukaryotic species, have been reported to exhibit this trait [ 10, 13]. The evolutionary trends of bioluminescence show exemplary convergent evolution in many cases, because of the almost similar purposes this trait serves in various species, or because of the similarity in the biochemistry of the molecules involved.

Comb jellies are the phylogenetically the most basic examples of bioluminescence in animals. Many species like Mnemiopsis [ 20, 37] use calcium activated coelenterazine as their bioluminescent substrate [ 4]. Some species, for example Beroe forskalii are known to produce myriad, cascading wave-patterns of intrinsic glow on their bodies, and some even emit a haze of glowing particles to startle the predator as a defensive measure, coupled with an escape response [ 38]. A majority of pelagic species are likely to exhibit bioluminescence [ 35]. The photo-proteins involved in bioluminescence in various genera like Mnemiopsis and Beroe have been studied, and are known to depend on calcium ions for their activity [ 39, 40].

The second limited-edition bottle from The Kraken’s ‘Unknown Deep’ collection, representing the second attempted expedition to find The Beast, comes contained within its own distressed diving cage – a tribute to the brave explorers who risked life and limb by plunging to the very darkest depths to haul these mysterious bioluminescent bottles to the e-shelves. Since bioluminescence is so widespread in nature, scientists have been speculating the cause of its origin and selection in the first place. The first speculation was made by E. N. Harvey himself, who believed that it had something to do with respiratory chain proteins, some of which may have had fluorescent groups or side chains [ 9]. Owing to the extensive research that he conducted, his theory gained some attention and credibility. It was, however, soon disproved. Some even state that bioluminescence may have merely evolved as a by-product of other metabolic functions, having no importance of its own. However, the repetitive and independent origins of bioluminescence in nature must mean that this trait does confer a significant evolutionary advantage to the species that exhibits it [ 10].

Bioluminescence is also common in the terrestrial ecosystems, though it is nowhere as abundant as in the ocean. Various worms and arthropods are known to exhibit complex behaviors related to this phenomenon. It is clear that bioluminescence has a powerful impact on behavioral and ecosystem dynamics [ 4].

Available from: We were looking through so many iterations of all the characters, but especially Ruby,” notes Puertolas. “We even modeled and rigged three different versions of Ruby. In the end, I think we made the best decisions to make Ruby such a likeable character. We knew that we didn't want to do a realistic approach to an octopus, but we did extrapolate the animal’s curviness, softness, and bulbousness and applied that to the characters.”Bioluminescent organisms are found in both terrestrial as well as aquatic habitats. However, the aquatic species are exclusively limited to marine ecosystems, and a freshwater bioluminescent system is yet to be reported [ 10].
