Comments P.301 bottom paragraph: "More recently, there have been reports of periodicity in light emission from bacteria (primary source, ref 7). In the former publication (primary source), light emission from several (5-10) cells was measured in a photon counter at a limiting resolution of 2 ms. By using time correlation, it was deduced that there was an oscillation with a fundamental frequency of 8 cycles/s, thus a peak about every 0.125 s."
