Paper Abstract

The homosapien, when placed in perspective with other mammals is a diurnal creature; that is, his primary activities are carried out during daylight hours. (Ref. 1) The fact that man is diurnal rather than nocturnal will not rattle the cages of our civilization, but when we look at ourselves relative to other mammals we find the homo sapien making up part of a 15% minority (Ref. 2) of animals. One need not refer to his slide rule to calculate the fact that 85% of all mammals are eithe r nocturnal or functional at night. (Ref. 3)
