Each autumn, seeds are spread in all sorts of ingenious ways. Many are carried by gravity, wind, or water. Hooks, barbs, and spines enable some to hitchhike on fur or fleece, while others blast off in ballistic bursts. Certain species, including many trees, enclose their seeds inside fleshy edible fruits that are appealing to hungry 'frugivores' who consume the fruit and later excrete the seeds. Join us to learn about the remarkable mechanisms and ecological relationships at play in the dispersal of local plant seeds.
