Seasons of Life: The biological rhythms that living things need to thrive and survive
By Russell Foster and Leon Kreitzman. Hardback edition (Profile Books, 2009).
The new world of chronobiology is popular science at its most exciting: understanding how the seasons regulate the life of every human, animal and plant on Earth.
Prof. Russell Foster from Imperial College, London is recognised as an expert in circadian rhythm research. This readable book explains how the changing seasons - particularly changes in light levels - impact our circadian rhythms. If you want a broader understanding of why you get SAD or would like to know more about the biological mechanisms behind light therapy, then this is the book to read.
