      Bioluminescence as a word can be thought of three parts

      BIO- Something that happens naturally in biology and living things

      LUMIN – Something that lights up and emits light

      ESCENCE – A process or event

      So bioluminescence is a process in living things that creates light, fireflys, and some types of fish are the most common to us when we think of it
