The phase response curve for the circadian rhythm of leaf movement of Coleus blumei x C. frederici, a short day plant, is generally similar to those reported for other organisms. An increase in the duration of the light signal caused an increase in the extreme values of the phase response curve and shortened the time for transition from maximum delays to maximum advances. Experiments with 2 light signals showed that the overt rhythm of leaf movement represents the rhythm of the light sensitive oscillator even during the transient period that followed the first light signal. A temperature decrease of 7 degrees for 8 hr caused only a transient phase shift in the following 2 cycles but not in the steady state. The combination of such a temperature decrease and a light signal showed that only the overt rhythm of leaf movement was disturbed by the temperature decrease whereas the light sensitive oscillator was free running. A temperature decrease of 11 degrees for 10 hr caused a steady state phase shift and affected the light sensitive oscillator as well.
