The Arctic ground squirrel sheds light on circadian rhythms
The Arctic ground squirrel has developed highly specialized adaptations to
extreme environments, and it has a lot to teach us about circadian rhythms
and biological clocks. This species maintains circadian rhythms throughout
the Arctic summer, despite the almost ceaseless daylight during this period.
The squirrels' body clocks have evolved to work just fine without the help of
the day/night cycle, which is so important to other animals--like humans.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
