Vegetable
In everyday usage, a VEGETABLE is any part of a plant that is consumed by humans as food as part of a meal. The term vegetable is somewhat arbitrary, and largely defined through culinary and cultural tradition. It normally excludes other food derived from plants such as fruits , nuts , and cereal grains, but includes seeds such as pulses . The original meaning of the word vegetable, still used in biology, was to describe all types of plant, as in the terms "vegetable kingdom" and "vegetable matter". Originally, vegetables were collected from the wild by hunter-gatherers and entered cultivation in several parts of the world, probably during the period 10,000 BC to 7,000 BC, when a new agricultural way of life developed. At first, plants which grew locally would have been cultivated, but as time went on, trade brought exotic crops from elsewhere to add to domestic types

Edible Seaweed
EDIBLE SEAWEED are algae that can be eaten and used in the preparation of food. They typically contain high amounts of fiber. They may belong to one of several groups of multicellular algae: the red algae , green algae , and brown algae . Seaweeds are also harvested or cultivated for the extraction of alginate , agar and carrageenan , gelatinous substances collectively known as hydrocolloids or phycocolloids . Hydrocolloids have attained commercial significance, especially in food production as food additives. The food industry exploits the gelling, water-retention, emulsifying and other physical properties of these hydrocolloids. Most edible seaweeds are marine algae whereas most freshwater algae are toxic. Some marine algae contain acids that irritate the digestion canal, while some others can have a laxative and electrolyte-balancing effect

Ovary (botany)
In the flowering plants , an OVARY is a part of the female reproductive organ of the flower or gynoecium . Specifically, it is the part of the pistil which holds the ovule (s) and is located above or below or at the point of connection with the base of the petals and sepals . The pistil may be made up of one carpel or of several fused carpels (e.g. dicarpel or tricarpel), and therefore the ovary can contain part of one carpel or parts of several fused carpels. Above the ovary is the style and the stigma, which is where the pollen lands and germinates to grow down through the style to the ovary, and, for each individual pollen grain , to fertilize one individual ovule. Some wind pollinated flowers have much reduced and modified ovaries

Corm
A CORM, BULBO-TUBER, or BULBOTUBER is a short, vertical, swollen underground plant stem that serves as a storage organ used by some plants to survive winter or other adverse conditions such as summer drought and heat (perennation ). The word CORMOUS is used to describe plants growing from corms, in analogy to the use of the terms "tuberous" and "bulbous" to describe plants growing from tubers and bulbs .

Venn Diagram
A VENN DIAGRAM (also called PRIMARY DIAGRAM, SET DIAGRAM or LOGIC DIAGRAM) is a diagram that shows all possible logical relations between a finite collection of different sets . These diagrams depict elements as points in the plane, and sets as regions inside closed curves. A Venn diagram
Venn diagram
consists of multiple overlapping closed curves, usually circles, each representing a set. The points inside a curve labelled S represent elements of the set S, while points outside the boundary represent elements not in the set S. Thus, for example, the set of all elements that are members of both sets S and T, S ∩ T, is represented visually by the area of overlap of the regions S and T. In Venn diagrams the curves are overlapped in every possible way, showing all possible relations between the sets. They are thus a special case of Euler diagrams , which do not necessarily show all relations. Venn diagrams were conceived around 1880 by John Venn

Peach
The PEACH ( Prunus
Prunus
persica) is a deciduous tree native to the region of Northwest China
Northwest China
between the Tarim Basin and the north slopes of the Kunlun Shan mountains , where it was first domesticated and cultivated. It bears an edible juicy fruit called a PEACH or a NECTARINE. The specific epithet persica refers to its widespread cultivation in Persia
Persia
(modern-day Iran), whence it was transplanted to Europe. It belongs to the genus Prunus
Prunus
which includes the cherry , apricot , almond and plum , in the rose family . The peach is classified with the almond in the subgenus Amygdalus, distinguished from the other subgenera by the corrugated seed shell. Peach

Plum
See text. A PLUM is a fruit of the subgenus Prunus
Prunus
of the genus Prunus
Prunus
. The subgenus is distinguished from other subgenera (peaches , cherries , bird cherries , etc.) in the shoots having terminal bud and solitary side buds (not clustered), the flowers in groups of one to five together on short stems , and the fruit having a groove running down one side and a smooth stone (or pit). Mature plum fruit may have a dusty-white waxy coating that gives them a glaucous appearance. This is an epicuticular wax coating and is known as "wax bloom". Dried plum fruits are called DRIED PLUMS or PRUNES , although, in American English, prunes are a distinct type of plum, and may have pre-dated the fruits now commonly known as plums

Scavenger
SCAVENGING is both a carnivorous and a herbivorous feeding behavior in which the scavenger feeds on dead animal and plant material present in its habitat. The eating of carrion from the same species is referred to as cannibalism . Scavengers play an important role in the ecosystem by consuming the dead animal and plant material. Decomposers and detritivores complete this process, by consuming the remains left by scavengers

Hunting
HUNTING is the practice of killing or trapping animals, or pursuing or tracking them with the intent of doing so. Hunting
Hunting
wildlife or feral animals is most commonly done by humans for food, recreation , to remove predators that are dangerous to humans or domestic animals, or for trade. Lawful hunting is distinguished from poaching , which is the illegal killing, trapping or capture of the hunted species. The species that are hunted are referred to as game or prey and are usually mammals and birds . Hunting
Hunting
can also be a means of pest control . Hunting
Hunting
advocates state that hunting can be a necessary component of modern wildlife management , for example, to help maintain a population of healthy animals within an environment's ecological carrying capacity when natural checks such as predators are absent or very rare

Tariff Of 1883
In United States tax law history, the TARIFF OF 1883 (signed into law on March 3, 1883 ), also known as the MONGREL TARIFF ACT by its critics, reduced high tariff rates only marginally, and left in place fairly strong protectionist barriers. President Chester A. Arthur
Chester A. Arthur
appointed a commission in May 1882 to recommend how much tariff rates should be reduced. The issue was controversial during the last three decades of the nineteenth century, making tariff revision a daunting task. Different constituents argued for opposite measures, often wanting to maintain tariffs on some items while reducing them on others. Support or opposition to tariffs often broke down along regional lines. In December 1882, the commission argued for substantial reductions. Protectionists in Congress by this time recognized that some type of reduction would be politically popular, but wanted to avoid a drastic cut

Staple Food
A STAPLE FOOD, or simply a STAPLE, is a food that is eaten routinely and in such quantities that it constitutes a dominant portion of a standard diet for a given people, supplying a large fraction of energy needs and generally forming a significant proportion of the intake of other nutrients as well. The staple food of a specific society may be eaten as often as every day or every meal, and most people live on a diet based on just a small number of staples. Staple foods vary from place to place, but typically they are inexpensive or readily-available foods that supply one or more of the three organic macronutrients needed for survival and health: carbohydrates , proteins , and fats . Typical examples of staples include tubers and roots; and grains, legumes, and other seeds
