Note(s): Estimating encounter probabilities for organisms maneuvering through luminescent ‘minefields’ requires characterization of the three-dimensional distribution patterns of the potential light emitters. In order to measure nearest neighbor distances (NNDs) of bioluminescent biota, we have developed a spatial plankton analysis technique (SPLAT) for 3D reconstruction and statistical analysis of the spatial point patterns of identified bioluminescent displays.
