  • Marine animals occasionally exhibit complicated temporal activity patterns, which are affected by both tidal and solar day cycles. The cumacean Dimorphostylis asiatica (Crustacea, Peracarida) swims up in the water column around nocturnal high tides. In the laboratory, the animals show a circatidal swimming rhythm, entrained by hydrostatic pressure stimulus. During recording, the daily bimodal circatidal rhythmicity spontaneously changes to a circadian daily unimodal light-entrained rhythm.
