Graphics Resources

Our Infographics were created in collaboration with experts from the Society for Research on Biological Rhythms to illustrate the key features of public education papers. Topics include the health and performance implications of Daylight Saving Time, school start times, light exposure, and eating schedules.


One infographic is a companion to the peer-reviewed paper "Why Should We Abolish Daylight Saving Time?", published in the Journal of Biological Rhythms.

Another infographic/paper is forthcoming.

Our Common Clock Mechanism Graphics Tool (Download a PowerPoint file) is a downloadable PowerPoint file containing the graphics and explanations of basic clock mechanisms for the fly, mammal, and plant clocks.
