Katherine Creath, Gary E. Schwartz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Long-exposure images of plant parts in total darkness using a highly-sensitive, lownoise, cooled CCD imaging array reveal halo-like patterns of metabolically-related biophoton emission around and between plant parts that falls off with distance.
