Description

This book examines the role of photoperiod (day length) in timing seasonal adaptations in plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates, and is the first to present such a broad perspective on the subject in quite some time. The current literature is distinctly separated among researchers working with these different taxa, resulting in inefficiency and redundancies. The field is poised to make rapid progress in the understanding of seasonal clocks at all levels of analysis, and Photoperiodism brings together experts working in disparate areas to stimulate conversation among investigators from all related disciplines. At the end of the book, the three editors analyze common themes in photoperiod time measurement across taxa, as well as common and dissimilar approaches to the study of photoperiodism, and propose future directions in research on photoperiodic time measurement.show more

Review quote

This book brings together all the major players that have contributed studies over the past decade on how organisms perceive and respond to circadian clocks at the molecular biology and genetic levels. It is a major achievement of which the editors should be justly proud ... This is an important publication and I suspect will remain so for years to come. * The Biologist *show more
