Natural Zeitgebers Under Temperate Conditions Cannot Compensate for the Loss of a Functional Circadian Clock in Timing of a Vital Behavior in Drosophila

The adaptive significance of adjusting behavioral actions to the best time of the day appears apparent. Laboratory research implicated an essential position of circadian clocks in behavioral timing and rhythmicity. But, latest research on clock-mutant animals questioned this significance below extra naturalistic settings, as numerous clock mutants confirmed almost regular diel exercise rhythms below seminatural
