M.K. Montgomery, M.J. McFall-Ngai, The Biological Bulletin
This image-rich Biological Bulletin scholarly article describes the final developmental stage of the symbiotic light organ system of squid host Euprymna scolopes with bacteria Vibrio fischeri. It also describes the period of late postembryonic development when particular tissues of the light organ mature which eventually mediate the functional squid-Vibrio fischeri symbiosis.
