1. Spontaneous locomotory activity was recorded continuously for several days in Carcinus maenas (L.). 2. A complex rhythm was observed which could be analysed into two components, one of diurnal frequency (24 hr.), with peaks of activity during the hours of darkness, and one of tidal frequency ( ca . 12.4hr.), with peaks at the time of high tide. 3. The rhythms persist in constant dim light at constant temperatures, whether the crabs are kept moist in air or continuously immersed in sea water… Expand
