About this book

Monograph which presents our current understanding of how the tides influence the physiology, locomotion, and reproduction of intertidal animals, plants, and also unicellular algae, protozoa, and bacteria. As it does so the work integrates the work on lunar clocks into the much larger literature on circadian rhythms.


Contents

1: Introducton to Organismic Rhythms and Tidal Cycles. 2: Time-Series Analysis. 3: Phase Setting and Entrainment. 4: Persistent Fortnightly and Monthly Rhythms. 5: The Elucidation of the Clock
