Project Plan: Why don’t all animals glow

Question: Why don’t all animals glow

I am interested in this question because I want to find out if humans could learn to make light in the same way that animals make light and use this as a way of providing light to our own lives. I am also curious to know if we can take their genes and put them into trees to light up our streets.

Rounds of Research:

Round 1: How do animals glow?

Round 2: How do some animals use light to help them survive (avoid being eaten and/or get their own nutrients)?

Round 3: How do some animals use light to help them reproduce?

  1. hey Joseph!
    I love your topic! This topic is really interesting and Iโ€™ve never thought about it before you mentioned it. What made you choose this topic? I do know that glowing animals have an increased chance of being spotted by predators. Evolution might be one of the factors.
    Looking forward to your research!

  2. Hello Joseph,

    This is a compelling topic that you chose. I also wonder why animals glowed, and wondered if there were any negative effects for them glowing, for example: if they glowed, then predators would see them easier, a negative trait.

    I can’t wait to learn more,
