  Re: Vines and the Coriolis Effect

Don,

It's well known that Wisteria sinensis (Chinese) twines in the opposite
direction of Wisteria floribunda (Japanese). Since both are native to the
northern hemisphere, there's at least one exception to the theory that
coriolis effects vine twining direction. I think the guy you quoted must
have been holding a glass in his curled fingers.
