Seeds need to get away from their parent plant to thrive. Seeds can be wind dispersed, carried by animals, or germinated by fire. A Cornell University student explains how the different seed dispersal mechanisms work. This STEM video is a co-production of Cornell University's Naturalist Outreach Program, the Ithaca College Park Media Lab, and NYS 4-H. Presentations guides to 'seed dispersal' can be found at the Naturalist Outreach webpage (http://blogs.cornell.edu/NaturalistOutreach). Check out other Naturalist Outreach videos.
