The studies of the influence that a magnetic field (MF) with a frequency of 8 Hz has on the infradian rhythms of physiological and metabolic processes indexes in animals have been carried out in order to verify the hypothesis on the synchronizing effect of natural electromagnetic fields. It is shown that the MF effect has alternating characteristics of the time organization of energetic physiological and metabolic processes in animal organisms in an infradian range and the partial smoothing of biorhythmic deviations between individual-typological groups of organisms occurs for single processes. This (i) shows the common system reaction mechanisms that the organisms of animals have to the effect of a certain factor and (ii) is evidence of the synchronizing influence of the daily influence of magnetic fields of extremely low frequencies on populations of organisms with initially different biorhythmic types. It has been concluded that the stable variations of electromagnetic background, including natural, can serve as a timer for biorhythms in a wide range of periods.
