dispersal by water
Dispersal by Water

The coconut can float on water for long intervals due to an air-filled pericarp layer.

dispersal by water3
Dispersal by Water

Mangrove seeds germinate while still attached to the adult plant. Seedlings are released into water.

dispersal by water4
Dispersal by Water

When its seed pod breaks open, Pond Iris seeds fall into nearby water. Seeds can float for long distances and germinate either in the water or when they become lodged in mud.

dispersal by wind

The feathery pappus helps carry the dandelion seed in an updraft.

Seeds with wings have a slower descent when they fall from a tree.

Dispersal by Wind
dispersal by wind6
Dispersal by Wind

The Red Campion ovary produces a “pepper pot” seed capsule with openings at the top. Wind shakes the capsule to scatter the seeds.

dispersal by animals fleshy fruits

Persimmons

Mulberries

Dispersal by Animals: Fleshy Fruits

Animals eat the fruit and deposit the undigested seeds at another location.

dispersal by animals attachment
Dispersal by Animals: Attachment

The cockleburr fruit has hooked barbs for attaching to an animal’s fur or a bird’s feathers.

Dispersal by Animals: Attachment

Mistletoe has a sticky fruit that attaches to the beak and faces of birds. Birds scrape their beaks on tree branches to spread the seeds.

mechanical dispersal
Mechanical Dispersal

The seeds are released when a ripe capsule of an Impatiens plant is touched.
