    Well if Hawes is correct then I'm going to revise my idea of how interdisciplinary the field of Plant Pathology is.

    It looks like Martha Hawes picked this up from existing literature:

    "Although debate continues as to whether the deformity is due to.....positioning in the cot (Mau 1968), prone lying does appear to have an inhibitory effect; it must be insisted upon, particularly for the hypotonic infant (McMaster 1983)"

    -- R.A. Dickson, "Conservative Treatment for Idiopathic Scoliosis", The Journal of Joint and Bone Surgery Vol 67-B, No. 2 March 1985.


    Btw I know Prof Dickson, he's still a scoliosis surgeon and is Head of the Departmnt of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery at the university in Leeds here in the UK
