Seasons of Life : The Biological Rhythms That Enable Living Things to Thrive and Survive Paperback

Description

The natural world is full of rhythms. How do birds know when to return to their nesting grounds?

What effect do the seasons have on our wellbeing, and how does the season in which we are born affect our subsequent life chances?

How did humans get the idea that there were seasons 50,000 years ago?

Seasons of Life explains why the seasons occur, the impact of seasonal change and how organisms have evolved to anticipate these changes.

For although we mask the effects of seasonal changes by warming our homes, lighting our nights, preserving foods and storing water, we cannot hide from them.
