This was a book that I was interested in to further my research into the effects of artificial lighting on the human. It is actually lacking in this particular area! It is well known today that compact florescent lights (CFL) and light emitting diode (LED) lights are having detrimental effects on humans. It is known that streetlights can have undesirable effects to the human also. The book does discuss how some of these relate to ecological systems. The book is very unique and has some interesting insights into ecosystem behaviors that are likely impacting the human. It is written by researchers and is a collection of their articles. I enjoyed the book, but I do consider the lack of human study an oversight for the ordinary person who wants to know how your office and home lighting products are affecting your health and the welfare of your family. It is a five star book on the impacts to birds, animals, plants and fish.
