The physical environment in which plants generally grow and develop is not constant. There are fluctuations in the environment, many of which do not occur solely as random or sporadic events. Rather, these changes appear at regular and predictable intervals. For example, each day as the earth rotates on its axis, plants growing out of doors are subjected to alternating spans of light and darkness. Furthermore, depending on the season of the year, the duration of each span changes predictably in relation to the inclination of the planetary axis. This single feature of solar radiation involving the lengths of light and dark spans is but one of many physical events that occur in rhythmic cycles.
