" In order to corroborate the hypothesis that variations in the rate of spontaneous ultra-weak photon emission (UPE) from germinating seedlings are related to local variations of the lunisolar tidal force, a series of simultaneous tests was performed using the time courses of UPE collected from three plant species—corn, wheat and sunflower—and also from wheat samples whose grains were transported between continents, from Brazil to The Netherlands and vice versa. All tests which were run in parallel showed coincident inflections within the UPE time courses not only between seedlings of the same species but also between the different species. In most cases, the UPE inflections were synchronised with the turning points in the local gravimetric tidal variation. Statistical tests using the local Pearson correlation verified these coincidences in the two time series. The results therefore support the hypothesis of a relationship between UPE emissions and, in the oscillations, the local gravimetric tide. This applies to both the emissions from seedlings of different species and to the seedlings raised from transported grain samples of the same species."
Given that energies here involved are much lower than thermal fluctuations at room temperature there must be something wrong in the assumption that this thermal fluctuation energy is a barrier for effects of much lower energies (as also occur with low intensity electromagnetic fields), and taking this paper in consideration they review how indeed some assumptions may be wrong.
Also, to take in consideration that some experiments in the absence of natural light have shown that the basic human "clock" is actually slightly longer than one day, and closer to one lunar day (24h and 50 min). The lunar day has a similar period (24h and 50 min). Are we influenced like plants and have our own biophoton emissions conditioned to lunar cycles?
