Many birds use seasonal cues to regulate their reproductive cycles. They do this by sensing day-lengths (photoperiods) or night-lengths (scotoperiods). Researchers from the Indo–US Center for Biological Timing, University of Delhi and University of Lucknow investigated the neurobiological pathways that mediate this process in one such bird - the spotted munia (Lonchura punctulata).
