About this book

Organisms from unicellular algae to humans display biological rhythms reflecting their ability at the molecular level to track time (Circadian clocks). This volume of proceedings presents papers discussing recent advances in the study of biological clocks, which are increasingly seen in coherent rather than variable terms.
