9788122416084: Biological Time

Biological Time presents an extraordinary hypothesis about how plants and animals are timed and the knowledge of this phenomenon by prehistoric, ancient and indigenous people. The work is supported with archeological evidence and a wide range of examples from salmon, deer, and geese to grapes.

Biological Time is for the naturalist, outdoors person, scientist and all those who wonder what clocks nature follows.

Highlights from the book are as follows:

- The works of art in the cave at Lascaux, France, dating back to 17,000 years ago, were solar-lunar calendars that aided Ice-Age men in knowing when and where to hunt large mammals.

- Ancient Mesopotamian calendars and religious rituals were used to time the opportune periods to harvest a wide range of plants and animals.

- The solar-lunar calendars and ceremonies of indigenous people on the Northwest Coast of North America and in the South Pacific Islands were primarily designed to gauge when fish are most easily harvested.

Book Description New Age International (P) Limited, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. 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 often 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. Printed Pages: 222.
