Note(s): Pyrosomes are colonial tunicates that, in contrast with typical luminescent plankton, generate brilliant, sustained bioluminescence. They are unusual in numbering among the few marine organisms reported to luminesce in response to light. Each zooid within a colony detects light and emits bioluminescence in response. To investigate the luminescence responsivity of Pyrosoma atlanticum and Pyrosomella verticillata, photic, electrical, and mechanical stimuli were used.This manuscript is available at http://www.biolbull.org/ and may be cited as: Bowlby, M.
