Abstract

Entrainment is as fundamental to an organism's circadian timing as are themolecular mechanisms involved in the functioning of the intracellular clerk oscillator. In nature, one Of the principle, although not the only, circadian entraining stimulus (Zeitgeber) is provided by the daily light-dark cycles. In animals, the visual processing apparatus alone is inadequate to accomplish the task of transducing circadian photic signals to the clockwork machinery. In fact, it is ever more appreciated by circadian biologists that organisms as divergent as plants and mammals have evolved a wonderfully complex array of partly redundant specializations which can guarantee the precise alignment of biological and environmental time. Research in circadianbiology is cruising at such a rate that attempts to review the state of the art can only hole, at best, to provide a snapshot of the speeding cruiserfrom its wake. This paper will hopefully provide a reasonably sharp portrayal of what is at hand.
