I am not sure if this question makes sense, it is completely out of the blue. Over a large range of latitudes, we have 4 distinct seasons and repeat again and again the next years. Even in the poles, we have distinct summer and winter. I believe many places in the tropics also have wet and dry seasons (not an expert).

So now the question comes: Is there any place on Earth that does not have a sub-annual cyclical pattern? It seems there are some really wet tropical rainforests that don't have season, do they "really" operate the same all year long? Do the organisms living inside rainforests also show no consistent behavioral cycles (e.g., like hibernation, mating seasons in other places)?
