Seed dispersal (animal)


Seed dispersal is the movement of seeds away from the parent plant. Plants are barely mobile; therefore they rely on different methods to transport their offspring. There are five main modes of transportation: gravity, wind, ballistic, water, and animals. Shown above is a seed that can attach itself to a passing organism. Eventually the seed falls off far from the parent plant and begins germination.
