How far is the ovary from the uterus?

Anatomically the ovaries are lateral to the uterus and they are about one inch (a finger width) (0.4cm) away from the uterus.However the egg has a longer distance to travel to the uterus.Each fallopian tube is 10–13 cm (4–5 inches) long. The isthmus of the tube is a small region, only about 2 cm (0.8 inch) long and the uterus is about 7 centimeters long (3cm) . If the egg implants in the middle of the uterus, as most do, the total length is 7.8 inches or 3cm from the ovary to the uterus.

What are the differences between short day plants and long day plants?

A long day plant requires fewer than a certain number of hours of darkness in each 24 hour period to induce flowering. These plants typically flower in the late spring or early summer as days are getting longer. Short day plants flower when the night is longer than a critical length. They cannot flower under the long days of summer. These plants generally flower in late summer or fall, as days are getting shorter. Short day plants will not flower if a pulse of artificial light is shined on the plant for several minutes during the middle of the night; they require a consolidated period of darkness before floral development can begin. Natural nighttime light, such as moonlight or lightning, is not of sufficient brightness or duration to interrupt flowering.
