A light pulse causes little phase change during the middle of the subjective day but, in the evening, light delays the clock and light in the morning advances it, with an apparent transition from large delays to large advances in the middle of the night. PRCs are therefore extremely revealing and allow detailed predictions of entrainment patterns.

However, many of the rhythms used in Arabidopsis , such as CAB gene expression, are related to photosynthesis and rapidly lose amplitude in darkness. Red and blue light gave similar results, again suggesting that both phy and cry photoreceptors participate. Repeating these experiments in photoreceptor mutants and with different amplitudes of light pulse should now identify the particular contribution of each photoreceptor species, but eventually assays will be required that include the more complex crepuscular light conditions found in nature. Light input must affect a component of the oscillator if it is to reset the clock.

Defining the targets of entrainment in the plant clock remains a challenge, although not for lack of candidates Kim et al. As mutants with altered PIF3 function affect developmental light responses in vivo , this was clearly a potential mechanism of photoentrainment. The proteins that are targeted for degradation should soon be identified. PRRs might thus function in part downstream of phytochromes, either modifying phy signalling through PIF3 or in a parallel input pathway. It is quite possible that the multiple input photoreceptors affect the plant circadian clock by several mechanisms.

Gating is essential for normal entrainment under long photoperiods and for continued rhythmicity in constant light, because the oscillator arrests about 10 h after dawn in elf3 mutants if light is present McWatters et al. Circadian clocks in other organisms also have rhythmically gated light signals human sleep effectively limits light input, for example , but understanding the full effects of gating is not trivial.

The phase of entrainment does not alter the internal sequence of events, but determines how that sequence relates to the environmental cycle: does dawn fall before or after the peak of CCA1 expression, for example, and does dusk arrive before or after TOC1 expression? Circadian rhythms in nature are always entrained, so the circadian clock contributes to plant physiology mainly by regulating the phase of entrained rhythms: the period of the clock under constant conditions is rarely, if ever, observed outside the laboratory.

Many parts of the circadian system combine to determine this phase, not only the light and temperature signalling pathways but also the circadian oscillator. Variation in any of these factors should alter the phase of entrainment and hence the adaptive value of the circadian system, so it is important to understand how phase is controlled.

There is a rich literature on formal studies of entrainment that dissect the various contributions of different factors Pittendrigh, The alteration in photoperiod, which occurs naturally in the seasonal cycle and alters the phase of entrainment, is possibly the most physiologically relevant variation. Rather, at least two signals must participate in entrainment, from a selection comprising the sharp transitions at dawn and dusk and the intervals of continuous light and darkness.

Both phy and cry photoreceptors are presumably involved in setting the phase under white light:dark cycles. A 2 h early phase of entrainment has recently been reported in phyB mutants, directly implicating phyB in entrainment Hall et al. Studies in cyanobacteria show that clock mutants gain a competitive growth advantage under light:dark cycles that match their circadian period. If and only if it has a normal phase of entrainment, a clock mutant can outgrow the wild type Ouyang et al. Given this variation and the wide range of processes under circadian control, crop performance might be improved by matching circadian rhythms to local growing conditions.

More detailed understanding of entrainment will be required to predict the behaviour of a particular variety, for a particular rhythm of interest. Mathematical modelling will grow in importance, given the complexity of the interactions involved. In one paradoxical development, entrainment has been shown to affect the period of subsequent circadian rhythms under constant conditions.

The use of different rhythms to test entrainment in different assays is raising a different problem. Very many if not all plant cells have a functional circadian system and input photoreceptors. The clocks controlling the expression of genes in different anatomical locations are functionally independent and their periods differ slightly, probably reflecting differences among the cell types involved Sai and Johnson, ; Thain et al.

This issue was highlighted all too clearly by experiments on CAB expression in wheat and tobacco seedlings in the first days after germination Kolar et al. As entrainment studies become more detailed and quantitative, it will be necessary to define which, and how many, circadian clocks are being studied.

Light signalling pathways from both phytochrome and cryptochrome photoreceptors regulate clock components to achieve entrainment in plants reviewed in Fankhauser et al. Arabidopsis plants in constant light i. Much recent work has used the period assay to define which photoreceptors affect the clock, under which lighting conditions: this work has been reviewed extensively elsewhere Somers, ; Yanovsky and Kay, ; Devlin, There are two types of overlap between the phy and cry pathways.

Firstly, phyA accumulates to such high levels under very low light conditions that its minor absorption of blue light causes significant period shortening. Previous work on other plant species had shown that plant phase responses shared the common pattern from other organisms reviewed in Engelmann and Johnsson, A light pulse causes little phase change during the middle of the subjective day but, in the evening, light delays the clock and light in the morning advances it, with an apparent transition from large delays to large advances in the middle of the night.
