Seasons of Life: The Biological Rhythms That Enable Living Things to Thrive and Survive
How do plants and animals "know" that the seasons will change? How do seasonal changes affect humans? What happens when the timing of seasonal events is altered?
In this fascinating book, Russell G. Foster and Leon Kreitzman draw on remarkable recent scientific advances to explain how seasonal change affects organisms, and how plants and animals over countless generations have evolved exquisite sensitivities and adaptations to the seasons. The authors also highlight the impact of seasonal change on human health and well-being. They conclude with a discussion of the dangers posed when climate changes disrupt the seasonal rhythms on which so much life depends.
