While the first edition of the critically acclaimed and highly popular Circadian Physiologyoffered a concise but rigorous review of basic and applied research on circadian rhythms, this newest edition provides educators with the primary textbook they need to support a course on this cutting-edge topic. Maintaining the same accessible multidisciplinary approach of the original, this volume provides a thorough grounding in a broad range of topics, while offering instructors many unique advantages.
This impressive handbook provides the foundation, along with the supplementary material, and all the implementation details necessary to run a cutting-edge class on an exceptionally timely and intriguing topic.
This edition of Circadian Physiologynot only updates the material covered in the original, but it also expands its length and scope, presenting many new findings, such as the discovery of new retinal photoreceptors, the identification of several non-hypothalamic circadian pacemakers, and the elucidation of genomic and proteomic mechanisms of biological timing. Three times the length of the original, this volume includes approximately 730 figures and 5,000 bibliographic references, making it a true handbook of circadian physiology.

Refinetti; Roberto University of South Carolina, Allendale, South Carolina, USA,Review:
...Refinetti goes to great lengths in defining and explaining many basic concepts with no presumption that undergraduates who would be interested in the subfield of circadian biology would have already covered most of these topics: for example, scientific methods, research ethics, statistics. This probably makes the book easily readable and interesting for some motivated high school students and people with very little science background...This book is seventh heaven for visually oriented learners.
-Mehmet Dokucu, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 51, No. 43, October 2006
Although the size of the book has been expanded three-fold...the popular overall structure of the first edition has been maintained, with five sections covering history and methodology, phemonenology, mechanisms, substrates, and practical applications. Each chapter has extensive tables, figures, photographs.... New features of the second edition include discussions of retinal photoreceptors, non-hypothalamic circadian pacemakers, and genomic and proteomic mechanisms. ...the text remains one of the few comprehensive and scientific introductions to circadian physiology that are currently available, and it should remain in popular demand....

praise for the first edition
Marvelous summary of research on circadian rhythms and the relevance to human behavior.
-- James W. Kalat Biological Psychology, 8th Edition
Both the book and the programs provide interesting and useful material.
