Lunar synodic cycles are the phases of the moon which can affect the biological rhythms of some animals and be used by them as cues for particlar forms of behavior.

For example mating behavior in animals as varied as Lepidoptra, the Quacking Frog and the Blue Wildebeest are all synchronised around the lunar cycle.
