Forest trees remember their roots

Post  sunip on Wed Jul 13, 2011 1:12 pm

Hi All,
Read on the news site of ScienceDaily: on a publication in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science,
New research from the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC)
showed that trees have more success in surviving a transplant in climate conditions
which are the same as where the tree is grown.
They respond to the environment, the so called -Nursery effect- which is known for a long time.
Well should we go native?
Will Baddely will be pleased.

Well, there's a news flash!!

Trees have more success in surviving a transplant in climate conditions which are the same as where the tree is grown. Thank God we have the National Academy of Science and the University of Toronto to clear that up for us!

Sorry for the sarcasm. I hope they didn't waste too much money on THAT report! Next, they should do one on whether or not college students like beer.

Hi Russel,
Ah yes, one hears they drink beer, but i am not sure they like it,
what people do and what they like is not always the same i heard as well.
We think we like something, or is it,
we like to think we like something because we do not like to think further?
My daughter, who is a research scientist keeps telling me not to think the way i do
but i am not a scientist, what to do?
Anyway, now even some scientist are allowing themselves to take the -nursery effect- serious
and going from there to new research, (when they are allowed of course by fellow scientist and the humble taxpayer).
Regards, Sunip Wink

I read that too quickly and thought it said "we should all go naked"

Given me a fantastic idea for some alternative workshops....Anyone interested?

Powertools may need some careful consideration though.

I remember reading a few years ago that a team of scientists at some university in Wales had spent 3 years studying whether sheep were warmer with their fleeces on or off. Vital work indeed!

And Will.....please stop posting those distorted pictures of yourself. I'm getting flashbacks Shocked

Hey Steve. How about suggesting " Naked and native" to Tony? We could have the first one at Burrs.

Right....first off Will, just take a moment to reflect on the motley crew who go to Burrs.

Now, do you really need to see some of those lads in the buff?

Besides, we'd never get Chris to take his cap off, lol

Sorry Steve. Got a bit carried away there and hadn't thought it through. Have now and how's about mankini's? Solves the problem with powertools too. I've put mine through the wash in anticipation.

Well, not that stupid an idea: in hot climates, when outside temperatures reach the human body temperature, most tourists just take off their clothes (as far as the sense ol local decency allows, of course).

"Natives" put on woolen sweaters: it insulates the body so that the body temperature stays cooler than the outside temp.

So for sheperds who want to keep healthy flocks, this study makes sense.

Oh God, no!

I'd gouge out my own eyes with a spoon, but you already put the image in my head.

I may never sleep again.

Don't get it, too esoteric for me.

Does it have anything to do with Sunip's message, or has this thread just become a playground for kids to show their muscles?

Sorry Alain. For the uninitiated, a mankini was the chosen beachwear of Borat from Kazakhstan. Sorry for the tangent but we are allowed to go off topic here.

What natives are these Alain? I can't recall seeing Arabs in Arran sweaters, Bushmen in fleeces or Indians in dufflecoats. Loose fitting cotton is always the order of the day.

A djellabah is made of wool, more expensive than a gandoura made of cotton which is worn over other clothes : the layers have the same insulating effect, just like when it's cold it's better to have two thin sweaters than one thick one.

I understand mankini now (I didn't see the film), at first I feared it was some esoteric Japanese term.
