Figure 3

(a) Profiles of mean bioluminescence potential (±SE, n = 4) measured for 4 minutes at 20 m intervals in January 2014. Bioluminescence potential is represented as total number of emissions m−3 (dark bars) and in number of photons (x1013 m−3) produced (light bars). (b) Relative proportion of the bioluminescent community (calculated from the number of individual emissions, which were then identified to species as described in Methods) comprised by each known bioluminescent taxonomic group and by unidentified individuals. Compound flashes which were not processed using the bioluminescence library are also included.
