Seed dispersal

Seed dispersal

Seed dispersal moves seeds away from the plant. Because plants can not move, they rely on factors such as people, animals, wind, and water to transport the seeds to different locations. The seeds may have tiny hooks at the ends that may cling into clothing or fur to be moved to a different location. Seeds may also be passed through the digestive tract and be dropped in a different place. Water and can carry the seeds to a place where they can germinate.
