Note: a more musically focused article is currently being developed at Beat, rhythm, and entrainment - these two should eventually be merged.

Entrainment in the biomusicological sense refers to the synchronization of organisms to an external rhythm, usually produced by other organisms with whom they interact socially. Examples include firefly flashing, mosquito wing clapping as well as human music and dance.
