 WHY

DO THE SEEDS DISPERSE TO FORM NEW PLANTS?

If the seeds simply fell and grew beneath the parent plants they would be too overcrowded and would be starved of nutrients. So it is important that the seeds are dispersed over a wide area where they stand a better chance of finding the right condition to grow.

There are 5 ways that seeds are dispersed.

  1: Wind dispersal
   
  2: Water dispersal
   
  3: Animal dispersal
   
  4: Explosions
   
   5: Fire
