Are cyclic plant and animal behaviours driven by gravimetric mechanical forcing?
J Exp Bot. 2021 Nov 2;erab462. Online ahead of print.
Note: From the abstract: “Here, we first offer a brief review of previously proposed explanations that gravimetric tides constitute a tangible and potent force shaping the rhythmic activities of organisms. Through meta-analysis, we then interrogate data from three study cases and show the close association between the omnipresent gravimetric tides and cyclic activity.”
