Circadian clocks are found in most eukaryotic organisms. By allowing anticipation of daily and seasonal changes they enable coordination of metabolism and life cycle with the natural rhythms of the environment. Plant circadian rhythms are generated by a series of interlocking feedback loops of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and protein expression that respond to environmental cycles of light and temperature. They control essential processes in the plant’s development, such as the transition to flowering or growth cessation.
