A clinostat is a motorized device that uses rotation to negate the effects of gravitational pull on plant growth and development, and has also been used to study the effects of microgravity on cell cultures and animal embryos. All organisms have evolved under the earth's gravitational field, and thus are most likely adapted to function optimally at this level. However, organisms have been shown to be capable of surviving under altered gravity conditions. The clinostat is a cost-effective model to understand how gravity affects biological processes, including development, and leading to a greater understanding of the evolutionary biology of organisms.
