Sometimes the deep-sea is portrayed as a dark and lifeless environment. Although it is a challenging habitat, it is still full of amazing life-forms — especially jelly-like drifters — many of which are new to science. Although it is not lit by light from the sun, it is full of flashes and glows caused by the organisms themselves. This talk will present an overview of the diversity of deep-sea animals, and share new discoveries on the functions and mechanisms of bioluminescence — the production of living light.
