Abstract english

Three kinds of light emission are taking place from organisms: bioluminescence in a narrow sense from some animals, dinoflagellatees, fungi and bacteria; delayed light emission from photosynthetic cells; ultraweak light emission from all kinds of cells. All these phenomena are treated in this chapter.
