The Earth and its inhabitants-3
' Sunshine and Animals '
JAMES RITCHIE (Professor of Natural
History in the University of Aberdeen)
The sun drives the wheel of life. All animals in the long run depend upon plants for food, and in return animals ] benefit plants in many ways. This is seen very clearly in the relation between insects and flowers. Animals depend on sunshine for their colours, and many uie its warmth for the hatching of their eggs. Temperature very largely regulates the distribution of animals upon the surface of the earth.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
