Drac (river)

The Drac is a 130-kilometre long river in southeastern France. It is a left tributary of the river Isère, it is formed at the confluence of the Drac Noir and the Drac Blanc, which both rise in the southern part of the Massif des Écrins, high in the French Alps. It flows through several reservoirs including the Lac de Monteynard-Avignonet, it flows into the Isère at Grenoble. Its major tributary is the Romanche; the Drac flows through the following departments and towns: Hautes-Alpes: Saint-Bonnet-en-Champsaur Isère: Corps, GrenobleThe average flow of the Drac at Fontaine is 97 cubic metres per second, with the highest monthly flows occurring in June, due to the melting of Alpine glaciers. The catchment area of the river is 3,550 square kilometres, which has an average rainfall of 859 millimetres; the name Drac the Drau, is due to an attraction by the Occitan drac "imp", derived from the Latin dracō, meaning "Dragon". It is documented in the forms of Dracum and the ribière dou Drau; the word "Drac" means Dragon.

In many legends the drac, in Occitan, is a genius of evil waters or a form of Satan that attracts children to drown. Frédéric Mistral wrote in Félibrige Treasury: In December 1995, six children and their teacher were drowned in the river after the level of water rose due to the opening of the valves of a dam, they were there to see beavers. All of them died. Http://

Pileus (mycology)

The pileus is the technical name for the cap, or cap-like part, of a basidiocarp or ascocarp that supports a spore-bearing surface, the hymenium. The hymenium may consist on the underside of the pileus. A pileus is characteristic of agarics, some polypores, tooth fungi, some ascomycetes. Pilei can be formed in various shapes, the shapes can change over the course of the developmental cycle of a fungus; the most familiar pileus shape is convex. Convex pilei continue to expand as they mature until they become flat. Many well-known species have a convex pileus, including the button mushroom, various Amanita species and boletes. Some, such as the parasol mushroom, are described as umbonate. An umbo is a knobby protrusion at the center of the cap; some fungi, such as chanterelles have a funnel- or trumpet-shaped appearance. In these cases the pileus is termed infundibuliform. Lamella Pileus area index Stipe Arora, D: "Mushrooms Demystified", Ten Speed Press, 1986
