The Darkness Manifesto: On Light Pollution, Night Ecology, and the Ancient Rhythms that Sustain Life (Hardcover)

Eklof shows us the effects of light pollution are infinitely more significant as light is so highly disruptive to the life cycles of countless species critical to the health of planetary ecosystems.
