Overview

This annotated bibliography makes available to the general reader and scholar a broad survey of the scientific literature on alleged cosmic influences on humans, animals, and plants. To be included, a study must involve the collection of data or be a commentary on studies based on data. As some of the topics covered are still quite controversial in nature, while other topics have been scientifically studied to some extent, the terms "alleged," "claimed" or "suggested" are noted in the citations to remind the reader that a particular study has not necessarily been proven to be scientifically valid. The four parts of Cosmic Influences on Humans, Animals, and Plants are organized around alleged effects of solar activity, the moon, the planets, and possible mechanisms for such actions. Some effects that the sun and moon are known to have on our daily lives, such as the cycles of light and dark and the lunar tides have not been included because of their commonality. However, other effects such as those influences the moon has been shown to have over some animals have been included for the sake of completeness. With subject and author indexes.
