About this book

Subtitled `A Primer on the Temporal Organization of Life, with Implications for Health, Society, Reproduction, and the Natural Environment.'

This text has been written for students and professionals who want to learn more about biological rhythms and the science of chronobiology. It is not a comprehensive treatise, but a primer that serves to introduce individuals to a this topic that encompasses all living organisms. It is intended to cover a basic cross-section of the field of chronobiology clearly enough so that it could be understood by a novice, or an undergraduate student, but that it would also be sufficiently technical and detailed for the scientist.

Media reviews

[Koukkari and Sothern] deal with the basic information at the beginning of the book and with applications at the end. The Essays attached to each chapter are very useful digressions and the 'Take Home Message' a good idea. - Dr. B. Millet, Universite de Franche-Comte (Besancon, France)
