Question

Cocount is a large and heavy fruit. How is it adapted for seed dispersal by water?


Solution

Coconut seeds have a very well developed fibrous outer coat. In addition to this the hollow interior of the coconut gives it the bouyancy it requires, thus ensuring that it stays afloat. This is how coconut seeds are carried away by flowing water to far and distant places.
