Seed And Fruit Dispersal

Posted on: April 12, 2010


Plant disperse their seed and fruit by scattering them far away from the parent plants. The advantages of dispersal:

  • reduce overcrowding
  • reduce competition between the parent plant and the young plant
  • enables seed to grow healthily
  • provides opportunities  to spread the species to new places

Some plants disperse their fruit that contain seeds while others disperse the seeds themselves. The seeds and fruits of plants have special  characteristics which help the agent to disperse them. Seeds and fruits can be disperse by:

  • Water

  • Example of fruit/seed dispersed by water: Coconut

  • Wind

  • Example of seed/fruit dispered by wind: Daisy 'Vittadinia sulcata'

  • Animals

  • Example of fruit/seed dispersed by animal: Strawberry (Isn't it cute?)

  • An explosive mechanism

  • Example of fruit/seed dispersed by an explosive mechanism: Okra
