Abstract: Physiologically controlled photocytes, capable of producing bioluminescence, are a common feature in the ocean among animals ranging from cnidarians to fish. The aim of this thesis was to study and compare the nature of this control, in both distantly and closely related species from the groups Teleostei Crustacea, and Cnidaria. This was done using histochemistry and electron microscopy to reveal the internal morphology of the different photophores and to identify the location of nerves and sig... more
