Chronobiology: Biological Timekeeping
TLDR
This chapter discusses the evolution of Biological Timing from Unicells to Humans, and the Relevance of Circadian Rhythms for Human Welfare. Expand
Spectral sensitivity of a novel photoreceptive system mediating entrainment of mammalian circadian rhythms
TLDR
The results suggest that the photoreceptive system mediating entrainment is markedly different from that involved in visual image formation, and the reciprocal relationship between intensity and duration holds for extremely long durations. Expand
Biological rhythms in the marine environment
TLDR
To get the on-line biological rhythms in the marine environment book, as the world window, as many people suggest, internet will help us very much not only for important thing but also for daily activities. Expand
Circadian Performance of Suprachiasmatic Nuclei (SCN)-Lesioned Antelope Ground Squirrels in a Desert Enclosure
TLDR
Circadian activity parameters of 53 white-tailed antelope ground squirrels were measured to determine the role of the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) pacemaker in their health and survival. Expand

  • 1 August 1986
TLDR
Behavioral aspects of photoentrainment of circadian locomotor activity rhythms were recorded for a nocturnal den-dwelling rodent, the flying squirrel, Glaucomys volans by means of either standard wheel cages or in newly developed simulated den cages. Expand
Egg-hatching Rhythms in Three Species of Fiddler Crabs
TLDR
The time of egg hatching of the fiddler crabs, Uca pugnax, U. pugilator and U. minax was monitored under controlled laboratory conditions and under natural field conditions to minimize predation on eggladen females walking to the water's edge to deposit their hatching zoeae. Expand

A circadian pacemaker in free-living chipmunks: essential for survival?
TLDR
Nighttime restlessness of supra-chiasmatic nucleus-lesioned animals may have acted as a clue to the predator for locating its prey when searching for prey during winter hibernation. Expand
Effect of light on the circadian activity rhythm of the flying squirrel, Glaucomys volans

  • 1 July 1961
TLDR
In ununterbrochener Dunkelheit dauerte die Aktivitätsperiodik eines Flughörnchens über längere Zeitspannen mit gleichbleibender Frequenz an, wenn Licht auf bestimmte Teile der Periode fiel. Expand
