About this book

This guide is designed to help you understand what seeds and fruits are, how they are formed and particularly how they are dispersed. Seeds, or fruits containing seeds, are dispersed in four main ways: by animals; by wind; by the plant themselves; and by water. The size, shape and colour of the fruit or seed together with other features all reflect the method of dispersal.
