Glow Down Deep Amazing Creatures That Light Up

Glow Down Deep Amazing Creatures That Light Up

Author: Lisa Regan Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/10/2020

Amazing! Wow! Cool Any one of these may well be the response when children see the lenticular cover and glow-in-the-dark illustrations in Glow Down Deep. The book takes readers into the lives of amazing glowing organisms - animal and otherwise - and shines a new light on the spectacular natural phenomena of bioluminescence, biofluorescence and ultraviolet light. Glow Down Deep goes into the depths of the ocean to find sea dwellers that use the power of light - or the semblance of light - to survive. It could be for camouflage, mating, warding off predators or attracting prey. The Glowing Ocean, for example, is a type of bioluminescence that many humans can see. It occurs on the water surface when small planktonic surface dwellers - such as single-celled Dinoflagellates - are bioluminescent. Under the right conditions, they bloom in dense layers, giving the ocean surface a reddish-brown color in daylight and a sparkly sheen at night. Some of the Dinoflagellates in these algal blooms are poisonous to animals and can cause sickness or even death in humans. Readers will learn about 23 organisms, their biology, what type of luminescence they use, where and how they survive: Bigfin Reef Squid, Dragonfish, Siphonophore, Glowing Coral, Cock-Eyed Squid, Crystal Jellyfish, Sea Pen, Chain Catshark, Comb Jelly, Hatchet Fish, Krill, Plankton. Did You Know? insets focus on unusual facts, like the sailors who followed the lights of Flashlight Fish to guide their boats through dangerous coral reefs at night; or the glowing Siphonophore Fish, one of the longest animals in the world, even longer than a blue whale! Like its companion title, Nature at Night, Glow Down Deep takes a new look at how nature magically lights up the dark. Young readers will thrill at the striking cover and spend many an hour under the bedsheets marvelling at the glowing illustrations.

Nature at Night

Nature at Night

Author: Lisa Regan Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/10/2020

Like Glow Down Deep, about luminescence in the ocean, this book also has a lenticular jacket and glow-in-the-dark illustrations. Nature at Night takes readers into the lives of some amazing glowing animal and plant organisms that use the phenomena of bioluminescence, biofluorescence or ultraviolet light as part of their survival arsenal. Nature at Night goes into the dark corners of forest, jungle and ocean to find organisms that use luminescence for camouflage, mating, warding off predators or attracting prey. One of the organisms is not an animal but is vegetation: Foxfire Fungi glow to attract animals that will eat them and spread their pores through their scat and so help the plant to reproduce. The book includes well-known creatures like Fireflies, Eels and Lanternfish, but also three animals which, it has been recently discovered, use luminescence: Polka-Dot Tree Frogs, the only known amphibian to use biofluorescence; Puffins, which use ultraviolet light to make their beaks glow during courtship; and Hawksbill Turtles, one of the rarest species on our planet and the first reptile seen exhibiting biofluorescence. In all, Nature at Night features these 23 glowing creatures: Dinoflagellate, Glowworms, Firefly, Foxfire Fungi, Crocodile, Hawksbill Turtle, Scorpion, Aurora, Fimbriated Moray Eel, Jellyfish, Swallowtail Butterfly, Lizardfish. Readers will learn about each organism, its biology, what type of luminescence it uses and how, where it lives and how it survives. Did You Know? insets share unusual facts, focus on a topic, or display incredible photographs, like curtains of shining Glowworms hanging from the ceiling of Waipu Cave in New Zealand. Like its companion title, Glow Down Deep, Nature at Night takes a new look at how nature magically lights up the dark. Young readers will thrill at the striking cover and spend many an hour under the bedsheets marvelling at the glowing illustrations.
