It is located at the center of Marpha Village in a three hundred-year-old building made of log and hand-hewn beams with stone and mortar walls. Constructed in three levels, our building is a classic example of Thak Khola architecture prevalent in lower Mustang. On the ground floor there is a central courtyard with adjoining cattle shed and storeroom. These spaces were originally used to keep domesticated animals, firewood and compost.

Airborne seeds and fruits have several ingenious methods of flying through the air, including whirling like a helicopter, gliding, and floating like miniature parachutes with tufts of fine hairs.
Of all the types of "helicopter fruits," those of Gyrocarpus are the most remarkable. Spinning fruits from Thailand: A.
Diptocarpus alatus Diptocarpaceae. Diptocarpus obtusifolius. Gluta Melanorrhoea usitata Anacardiaceae. The latter species is also called the Burmese lacquer tree and is well-known as a source of lacquer. The resin is chemically similar to the Japanese lacquer tree. Like the Japanese lacquer tree and poison oak, the resin canals also contain urushiol, a mixture of toxic phenolic compounds that cause a cell-mediated immune response in some people.

The football-sized gourds hang from a vine high in the forest canopy, each packed with hundreds of winged seeds. The remarkable winged seed of the tropical Asian climbing gourd Alsomitra macrocarpa. The entire seed has a wingspan of 5. This seed reportedly inspired the design of early aircraft and gliders. Since this remarkable glider shaped like a stealth bomber is a single seed produced inside a large, many-seeded fruit, it undoubtedly has the record of largest flying seed!
Left: The Mary's bean Merremia discoidesperma is certainly one of the most elusive and interesting of all drift seeds in fact and fiction. A thick, woody seed coat and internal air cavities enable this remarkable seed to drift for years at sea, from Central America to beaches of Norway. Right: The Mary's bean Merremia discoidesperma is held in place inside its papery capsule by a black strap.
The connecting strap produces a groove across one side of the seed that intersects with another indentation, thus forming the distinctive imprint of a cross. A Mary's bean vine Merremia discoidesperma showing the papery capsules and fuzzy black seeds with a faint cross etched on one side.
Each capsule contains one fuzzy Mary's bean than eventually gets worn smooth. Although this vine has only been found in a few locations of Mexico and Central America, its distinctive seeds are known from beaches of the Marshall Islands to Norway, a distance of more than 15, miles. A rather expensive Mary's bean necklace imported to San Diego from Brazil.
The origin of the seed is unknown. It could have originated in Central America and was carried to Brazil, or possibly it was collected as a drift seed. Pods and seeds of Mucuna cf. One seed has an attachment stalk funiculus that encircles the seed along its hilum. The pods are covered with dense, stinging hairs. These may be the same species. Sea beans such as these may have a longer dispersal distance than the Mary's bean, but they are so widely distributed that it is difficult to be certain about their precise point of origin.

The animal that made this was probably larger than any present-day herbivore. It might have been excreted from one of the large sauropods that inhabited this region.

Basic installations or services. Equipment for a small-scale industrial plant. When considering the setting up of a fruit and vegetable processing plant, whether it be a cottage industry or a small industrial scale system, the first point to bear in mind is the infrastructure required to properly lodge all of the necessary equipment. Some time must thus be devoted to coordinate two aspects that are vital to the development of a project of this nature, namely costs and the quality of the infrastructure needed to achieve the established goals. It must always be borne in mind that since the food to be processed is intended for human consumption, the infrastructure must meet several requirements. The basic general aspects of such requirements will be analyzed in this chapter.

The fluffy dandelion seed head -- that gauzy, white sphere that is really a cluster of seeds on wispy filaments -- infuriates gardeners, but delights physicists. That's because those seeds may lend key insights into the physics of parachutes, useful for designing small drones, or micro air vehicles MAVs. An interdisciplinary collaboration of three groups including researchers in fluid dynamics, micro fabrication and biomechanics at Scotland's University of Edinburgh will present their findings on the topic at the 70th annual meeting of the American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics, held Nov. Investigators reveal why, at low Reynolds numbers, the rules for big parachutes don't apply to small dandelions. The Reynolds number, the ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces, is often used in engineering to predict whether flow conditions will be turbulent, a high Reynolds number, or laminar. Although the physics and design rules of human-made parachutes are well-understood, until the Edinburgh team's effort, the flow around the miniature parachute of the dandelion was not. The answer, according to research team member Cathal Cummins, is in the vortex. The work can potentially be applied to miniaturizing MAVs useful for remote observation and dispersion in a range of applications, from agriculture to space exploration, especially in conditions hazardous to humans. Their works starts with a parachute model. The dandelion has evolved a parachute that addressed atmospheric considerations, carrying its seed in slow, steady descent and with minimal use of materials.

Establishing production facilities 2. Introduction 2. The site 2. Design and construction of the building 2. Equipment 2. Packaging materials. Introduction All fruit and vegetable processing operations require an hygienically designed and easily cleaned building to prevent products from becoming contaminated during processing. The two main sources of contamination are 1 insects and animals and 2 micro-organisms. Insects and animals are attracted to food buildings if foods or wastes are left lying round after production has finished. Micro-organisms can grow in food residues that are left on equipment, tables or floors which have not been properly cleaned.
The cause of the shape of the pomegranate seed is thus in the soul of the plant, which is responsible for the growth of the fruit. But this cannot be the real cause of the shape, since it does not endow the fruit with its shape out of a formal property, but rather assisted by material necessity. For at first, while the seeds are still small, they are round, and they remain that way for as long as there is sufficient room within the rind. Later as the rind stiffens and the seeds continue to grow, they become crowded and are pressed together just like peas within their narrow pods. Peas, however, have no room to yield, for they are placed all in a row within the long pod, and thus they are compressed only on two sides. The round seeds of a pomegranate, on the other hand, are born into the larger space of the fruit, for that at first, each one can easily work itself between the three seeds of the adjacent layer, aided by its own roundness, and wherever pressed, pushing its sap into the empty spaces. And if someone were to take many round little beads of equal size and of the same soft material, put them in a round vessel, and begin to compress it from all sides with bronze rings, many of the beads would be squeezed into a rhombic shape, especially if by carefully shaking the container you first allowed them to settle into narrower spaces by their own free rotation. The form of each seed is a diagram of the conditions of its growth. I was able to reverse-engineer this process and I developed a method to achieve a parallel structural outcome at a larger scale: I cast resin into flexible bladders and packed them into a container; spheres of reactive liquid pushed against their neighbors until tension created parallel planes; the material cured and captured each individual state of compression. As planned, this methodical homogeneity yielded a collection of utterly unique forms.

Orange processing plants are located in the vicinity of the fruit growing area. Fruit should be processed as soon as possible after harvesting because fruit deteriorates quickly at the high temperatures found in citrus-growing areas. Orange products, on the other hand, are produced in a form that allows them to be stored for extended periods and shipped over long distances.
