Friday November 14, 2003. Jones Effect: In Philip K. Dick's novel _The World Jones Made_, Jones can see a year into the future.

Mantis shrimp fluoresce to enhance signaling in the dim ocean depths

UC Berkeley marine biologist Roy Caldwell and colleagues now show that mantis shrimp fluoresce in the murky depths both for recognition and to threaten other mantis shrimp.
