    • Thanks, this is more proof that trees are circulating sap, rather than the "thought up" one way lift through porous leaves" Animation of branches and leaves at night can be explained with changes in pressure, as the evaporation slows down along with sap cooling. Applying more tension to the sap on one side of a tree, and lowering the pressure of the sap in the xylem would cause the soft wood branches to bend and twist and releasing the tension and raising the sap pressure at night should cause the branches to move back in the opposite direction. high and low humidity can also affect internal pressures. Great find :)

    • Hullo Just came across this. They think the tree is involved in pumping. www.sott.net/article/383550-Do-trees-have-sleep-cycles excerpt: Short-term plant movements are caused by changes in water pressure within tissues. It is generally assumed that water transport in trees takes place as a steady-state process with no variations faster than the day and night cycle. The new findings suggest that short-term change in water transport and tissue pressure is widespread. Journal article here: András Zlinszky, Anders Barfod.

The Edwin Smith papyrus: a clinical reappraisal of the oldest known document on spinal injuries

Abstract

Dating from the seventeenth century b.c. the Edwin Smith papyrus is a unique treatise containing the oldest known descriptions of signs and symptoms of injuries of the spinal column and spinal cord. Based on a recent “medically based translation” of the Smith papyrus, its enclosed treasures in diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic reasoning are revisited. Although patient demographics, diagnostic techniques and therapeutic options considerably changed over time, the documented rationale on spinal injuries can still be regarded as the state-of-the-art reasoning for modern clinical practice.
