The relationship between circadian rhythms in the blood plasma concentrations of melatonin and rhythms in locomotor activity was studied in adult male sheep (Soay rams) exposed to 16-week periods of short days (8 hr of light and 16 hr of darkness; LD 8:16) or long days (LD 16:8) followed by 16-week periods of constant darkness (dim red light; DD) or constant light (LL). Under both LD 8:16 and LD 16:8, there was a clearly defined...
