Biological rhythms, such as the sleep-wake cycle or circadian clock, are an intriguing aspect of biology. This book describes and evaluates studies in this field and discusses the investigations done on rhythmic biology, including genetic and molecular approaches used on other insect species. It highlights the mystery of the "clock mechanism"
