We live in a world dictated by the atomic clock. Yet our bodies, honed by over 3 billion years of evolution, beat to an older celestial rhythm. All living things contain molecular clocks that anticipate the daily pattern of dawn to dusk. Our daily circadian rhythms still dictate the pattern of our lives -- when we wake, when we sleep, when we feel at our best & at our worst. This book explains how our daily patterns of sleeping & waking, eating & drinking depend not just on how tired we feel, or how hungry or thirsty we are, but what our biological clocks are telling us. Drawing on research in many species of plants, animals, bacteria & algae, this book describes the world of circadian rhythms & makes this area of biological medicine accessible to all. Illus.
