You may think that trees and other plants are stationary and passive organisms that just stand around all day. So long as they get sufficient sun and water, everything is fine.

We have known for a long time that plants act differently at night than during the day. Last year, Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael W. Young, won the Nobel Prize in physiology for their work on the molecular mechanisms that control circadian rhythms of animals and plants.
