Artificial lighting alters biorhythms of birds
      #6101201 - 09/25/13 08:08 PM

"While air-, noise- and water pollution have been scientifically investigated and reached public awareness, there is only a very slow-growing consciousness about light pollution—the pollution of naturally dark skies by artificial light and its impacts on humans and ecosystems. Over the past three years, the interdisciplinary research project "Loss of the Night" headed by the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Biology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) has undertaken pioneering research work. In the sub-project "BILL" (Birds in ILluminated Landscapes) the work group of Reinhard Klenke from the UFZ has conducted comparative studies on the influences of different light regimes on bird populations."

At my work we don't use any lights outside during the night time for this very reason. Everything to be done outdoors waits 'till we spin back to the sun. Our light carts are(were) extremely bright.
