Sent in an email by Sbp. Regarding "foxfire" (ie. the light given off by bioluminescent plants):

People from many parts of the world have found uses for these natural lanterns. The Swedish historian Olaus Magnus wrote in 1652 that people in the far north of Scandinavia would place pieces of rotten oak bark at intervals when venturing into the forest. They could then find their way back by following the light. [http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/cgi-bin/ifetch?netnews+382096931382702+F Read more.]
