This volume contains the proceedings of the 4th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Chronobiology, held jointly with the British Society for Chronobiology at Birmingham, UK, 1988. Contributions, both fundamental and applied, illustrate the multidisciplinary nature of contemporary chronobiology and indicate how an understanding of biological rhythms may contribute to various aspects of human biology and endeavour.
