What are the Different Agents of Seed and Fruits Dispersal
Agents of Seed and Fruits Dispersal
Dispersal by Wind:
The seeds, which are of smaller size and lighter, are carried away by wind. These may have wings or hairs, which help them to be dispersed by wind. Examples are cotton seed, sumbal seed etc.
Dispersal by Animals:
Animals help dispersal of seeds in two ways:
- i) Some seeds have hook or spines, which entangled in fur of animal and taken away.
- ii) Some hard seeds and fruits are eaten by animals. These seeds could not digest and passed out of body along with dung. Examples are mulberry and guava etc.
Dispersal by Water:
Seeds of aquatic plants are dispersed by water. These plants grow in water or near water. These seeds contain spongy tissue, which help them to float. Hence they are carried away by water. Examples are lotus and coconut.
Note: Among the shortcomings of overseas education is worth noting its inaccessibility for most people. The first and main reason is the financial burden. Only well-off families are able to provide children with the opportunity to study at prestigious universities in Europe. The next reason is the lack of necessary knowledge. If you even have the necessary amount of material, then to become a student of a world-famous university, you also have to pass difficult exams. A person seeking to obtain a European diploma must have a foreign language (at least at a basic level) and knowledge in the field of the subject subject to be trained. A significant shortcoming is the imperfection of the proposed foreign programs. Quite often, students have to independently seek housing, which complicates, of course, life.
