Endogenous Chemiluminescence from Germinating Arabidopsis Thaliana Seeds

" ... we demonstrated that the entropy of the chemiluminescence time series is similar to random Poisson signals." {Credits 1}

The problem that I see with this kind of experiments (and because that this section may be partially flawed) is that don't take into account that:

1- As mentioned in [1] active biophotons (for example those glutamate induced) are those that are more biologically significant (information carriers) but there is a background biophoton emission that is more massive and is what is detected using solely photo counting techniques.

2- As is mentioned in various papers [2-5] the relevant biophotons are probably guided by biological waveguides (like microtubules or actin filaments) and are not those that are more detected externally.

3- There is incoming evidence that other factors that are hidden in a solely photocount analysis are information carriers, like spectral power densities[6], spectral analysis [7] and others, and that, in any case, biophotons carry information (see bystander and autooptic papers in subsection [8]).

And, as various papers point out in this website, reactive oxygen species are not the unique source of biophotons.
