Diagramming Phenomena for Mechanistic Explanation


As part of an inquiry into how diagrams figure in scientific practice, we examine diagrams that represent phenomena in-volving circadian rhythms. Different diagrammatic formats are developed and revised over time to best represent different phenomena for which explanations will be sought. Some dia-grams are less transparent than others, so learning is often re-quired in order to see the information conveyed.
