Dispersal of seeds is the spreading of seeds across places. This dispersion of seed can take place by the following means:

  • Water – it takes place in aquatic plants and plants growing near water bodies, here seeds are dispersed through water. These seeds tend to develop a fibrous or spongy coating. Example – coconut
  • Wind – some light-weighted seeds tend to float in air and hence are dispersed by wind. Example – Maple 
  • Animal – Seeds that are dispersed by animals have spines which helps them attach to the animal bodies, hence carried to distant places. Example – urena
