PLANT STATION #13 Seed dispersal Seed development was a major factor in the success of angiosperms and gymnosperms. Seeds offer protection and nutrition of the embryo. Angiosperm seeds have an advantage over gymnosperm seeds by having a fruit surrounding the seed. This fruit is instrumental in the dispersal of the seed. 1. There are four types of seed dispersal: explosive, wind, animal and water. Go to the following web site on the computer and fill in the chart. When you get to the web site, click on each type of dispersal to discover howit works. Seed Type Explanation Advantage Example Sketch Explosive Plants violently eject their seeds Seeds fall far from the parent Pea family Wind Seeds dispersed by wind must be light and small. There are many variations such as the parachute or winged seeds Seeds travel far from the parent Dandelion or ragwort: parachute Sycamore: winged Animal Some seeds have hooks that attach to mammal fur.  Other seeds are eaten within a fruit and expelled after it passes through the digestive tract. Seeds attached by a hook often fall off at a considerable distance from the parent.  Seeds defecated are usually far from the parent. Hooks:  Burdock seed Eaten and expelled: berries Water Water plants and some plants that grow near water have seeds that float.
