Publisher Comments:

Biological Time is for the naturalist, scientist, outdoors person, gardener and all those who wonder what clocks nature follows. Plants and animals time themselves by rhythms of light and darkness. We ofter think of the sun and how it transforms the seasons, but illumination from the moon governs the night and presents equally important influences. Prehistoric people understood these relationships and used their movements to mark time and plan for important events, such as when to hunt, fish and gather wild fruits. Farmers utilized this same formula to forecast the success of crops and animals. Great civilizations were built and religions formed based on this methodology, which is still practiced by some indigenous peoples. Biological Time presents an extraordinary hypothesis, supported with archeological evidence and a wide range of examples ranging from salmon, deer, and geese to grapes.

About the Author

Naturalist Bernie Taylor is the author of Biological Time, a groundbreaking book about how the rhythms of nature can be paced by the light and dark cycles of the sun and moon and the awareness by peoples since prehistoric times. He lives in the rolling hills of Oregon's Willamette Valley where he frequently wades the streams and hikes through the woods and meadows.
