Anomochlooideae 4 Before , fossil findings indicated that grasses evolved around 55 million years ago. Recent findings of grass-like phytoliths in Cretaceous dinosaur coprolites have pushed this date back to 66 million years ago. The authors noted that India became separated from Antarctica , and therefore also all other continents, approximately at the beginning of late Aptian , so the presence of grasses in both India and China during the Cretaceous indicates that the ancestor of Indian grasses must have existed before late Aptian. Bambusoideae and Pooideae are more closely related to each other than to Oryzoideae. Description[ edit ] Diagram of a typical lawn grass plant. Grasses may be annual or perennial herbs, : The stems of grasses, called culms , are usually cylindrical more rarely flattened, but not 3-angled and are hollow, plugged at the nodes , where the leaves are attached. A membranous appendage or fringe of hairs called the ligule lies at the junction between sheath and blade, preventing water or insects from penetrating into the sheath. The part of the spikelet that bears the florets is called the rachilla. A spikelet consists of two or sometimes fewer bracts at the base, called glumes , followed by one or more florets.

Avant pre-facelift Interior The third generation Audi , launched in September , had an aerodynamic look, achieving a drag coefficient of 0. The increased aerodynamic efficiency resulted in better fuel economy. The design was in contrast from the boxy shape of the C2. Audi innovated flush windows on the C3, a key area for aerodynamic drag that has been widely adopted by other manufacturers. The aerodynamic body gave the higher top speed than other cars of similar engine size.
The two-door models were no longer available, and the Audi Avant was now positioned as a station wagon rather than a hatchback – the Avant designation would now be used for all Audi station wagons from that point forward.

Where can I get more information? What is Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease? Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease CMT is one of the most common inherited neurological disorders, affecting approximately 1 in 2, people in the United States. CMT, also known as hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy HMSN or peroneal muscular atrophy, comprises a group of disorders that affect peripheral nerves.
The peripheral nerves lie outside the brain and spinal cord and supply the muscles and sensory organs in the limbs. Disorders that affect the peripheral nerves are called peripheral neuropathies. The neuropathy of CMT affects both motor and sensory nerves. Motor nerves cause muscles to contract and control voluntary muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing. A typical feature includes weakness of the foot and lower leg muscles, which may result in foot drop and a high-stepped gait with frequent tripping or falls.
Foot deformities, such as high arches and hammertoes a condition in which the middle joint of a toe bends upwards are also characteristic due to weakness of the small muscles in the feet. In addition, the lower legs may take on an “inverted champagne bottle” appearance due to the loss of muscle bulk. Later in the disease, weakness and muscle atrophy may occur in the hands, resulting in difficulty with carrying out fine motor skills the coordination of small movements usually in the fingers, hands, wrists, feet, and tongue.
Onset of symptoms is most often in adolescence or early adulthood, but some individuals develop symptoms in mid-adulthood.
Description[ edit ] Two of the tablets are rectangular and the third is round. All three have symbols inscribed only on one face. The others have a variety of mainly abstract symbols. A recent claim of forgery is based on the similarity between some of the symbols and reproductions of Sumerian symbols in popular Romanian literature available at the time of the discovery. Dating[ edit ] Workers at the conservation department of the Cluj museum baked the originally unbaked clay tablets to preserve them.
This made direct dating of the tablets themselves through carbon 14 method impossible.
