Artificial lighting

Artificial lighting

Any light source other than natural light. Artificial light sources include those with a continuous spectrum such as candles, normal electric light bulbs (tungsten lighting), special photographic light bulbs, photoflood bulbs, as well as discontinuous light sources such as fluores-

Wildlife-friendly lighting is desirable to reduce light pollution in areas where excessive artificial lighting can harm ecosystems, especially coastal areas where sea turtles need a dark sky to migrate towards the ocean.
If natural light is not available, the study suggests optimizing the spectrum, intensity and variability of artificial lighting to support positive behaviors.
However, some organisms exploit the night light niche (Garber 1978) by consuming organisms that are attracted to artificial lighting (e.

The main difference between our current artificial lighting and the light under which we evolved is the greater amount of blue wavelength light in artificial light.
So (in alphabetic order), artificial lighting means "lighting designed and deployed by a human(s) to accomplish certain goals"; daylighting is understood as "lighting from the sun designed and deployed by a human(s) to accomplish certain design criteria"; light pollution is understood as "light, often designed and deployed by humans, that has an effect offensive/injuri-ous to someone or is contrary to accepted standards.
While artificial lighting is obviously a major benefit, it also changes behaviors that can contribute to increased disease transmission by attracting insect carriers and encouraging people to stay outside after dark, the authors conclude.
DISCUSSION: We present three infectious vector-borne diseases--Chagas, leishmaniasis, and malaria--and discuss evidence that suggests that the use of artificial lighting results in behavioral changes among human populations and changes in the prevalence of vector species and in the modes of transmission.
