How Seeds of Plants Are Spread for Reproduction
Plants have various ways of scattering their seeds so young plants can spread around to grow away from their producers so they don't compete with each other in order to survive.
Many seeds are carried by wind, animals, or water; and some have fruits that are eaten by animals, which then deposit the seeds in their droppings.
Birds and mammals are the most important seed dispersers with the system ofendozoochory; however, there are a wide variety of other animals, including turtles and fish, which also transport viable seeds.
2. Any spore, seed, or organism that is dispersed by being carried upon the body of an animal.
It is believed that epizoochorous transport can be highly effective if seeds attach to wide-ranging animals.
This epizoochorous form of seed dispersal has been implicated in rapid plant migrations and the spread of invasive species of plants.
2. Widely distributed.
During low tides, these processes of hydrochores might fall in soil instead of water and start growing right where they fall; however, if the water level is high, they can be carried far away from where they fell.2. A dependence on water for dissemination.
