The secretion of plasma melatonin exhibits a diurnal variation in the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus jacchus) (n = 12) with mean values of 125.8 fmol/ml during darkness and below assay sensitivity (mean 70.5 fmol/ml) during the light period. Both melatonin secretion and the rest activity cycle appeared to be phase advanced with relation to the light dark cycle which is consistent with an endogenous circadian period (tau) of less than 24 h in this species.
