Organisms of all designs and dimensions synchronize their behaviors employing biological clocks. Some keep tempo with the day-to-day climbing and setting solar employing circadian rhythms. Other folks use annual cycles or the transforming seasons as their cue. But lots of animals use moonlight and Earth’s lunar cycle to operate their biological clock. Do people do the identical factor, with matters like menstrual cycles? This week we take a glance at living by moonlight.
