Seed Dispersal


Seed dispersal is the transport of seeds away from the parent plant. There are three main types of seed dispersal. One is by animals; a seed may have barbs and hang onto the fur and feathers, animals eat the fruit and then it passes through the digestive tract where it is left somewhere else, and some animals bury seeds. Seeds can be dispersed by the wind; these plants usually have more seeds to increase the chances of a seed germinating. Aquatic plants and plants that live near the water have seeds that float, so that the water can carry the seeds. The Seine River is a river that is an aquatic method to seed dispersal.
