GCSE Natural History - Life at night and the wonder of dark skies

Press/Media: Other

Description

Light and dark are essential to our circadian rhythms, informing our biological clocks of when to be active or rest. They are also vital for many of the other creatures on this planet we share. A lot of natural history focuses on what happened during the daytime. More recently, we have begun to understand just how essential darkness is to the behavioural patterns of flora and fauna. A Natural History GCSE will help more students become custodians of dark skies for the benefit of people, planet and the countless beings we share it with.
