Re: Vines and the Coriolis Effect

To skeptics:

Yet another question which is getting entirely off subject, will our
family dog, Halley (after the comet), who rotates clockwise once or
twice before she lies down (an old innate habit of chasing snakes away
from the immediate area prior to sleep) turn counter-clockwise to do
this in the southern hemisphere? 

How does phototropism get along with this Coryollis effect? And we all
know that plants growing in the southern hemisphere are essentially
growing up-side-down, so does geotropism come into play? How far does a
plant need to be from the equator to be allowed to turn the other cheek? 

Losing sleep over these issues...

I remain,


Happy new year to all.
