The Field Museum opens Creatures of Light. Nature’s Bioluminescence

The Field Museum presents Creatures of Light. Nature’s Bioluminescence, an exhibition on view March 7, through Sept. 8, 2013.

Creatures of Light delves into the mysterious world of bioluminescence – from the glowworms dangling from the ceiling of New Zealand’s famous Waitomo Caves, to the deep-sea fishes that illuminate the perpetually dark depths of the oceans. Discover the variety of ways in which light is used to attract a mate, lure unsuspecting prey, or defend against a predator, and see how scientists study this amazing ability to glow. Immerse yourself in these magical environments and revel in the beauty of this remarkable natural phenomenon.

Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, in collaboration with The Field Museum, Chicago and the Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa, Canada. http://fieldmuseum.org
