SEASONAL changes in photoperiod have wide-ranging effects on the biology of most temperate zone vertebrates1,2. Although photoperiodic responses have been extensively studied in birds3, research on photoperiodic effects in mammals has been confined largely to their influence on reproductive and pelage cycles4,5. Less well understood are the effects of… CONTINUE READING
