Light and temperature are 2 of the most important environmental influences on all circadian clocks, and Neurospora provides an excellent system for understanding their effects. Progress made in the past decade has led to a basic molecular understanding of how the Neurospora clock works and how environmental factors influence it. The purpose of this review is to summarize what we currently know about the molecular mechanism of light and temperature entrainment in Neurospora.
