'Seed - Dispersal'

Studying Biology at school I was intrigued by the wide range of methods used by plants to distribute their seeds. Some eject explosively, some form delicate parachutes to catch a breath of wind or burrs to hook onto fur or feathers of passing creatures. Whatever the means, the seed is pushed as far away from the parent plant as possible.
