Finally Fall: Seed Dispersal: Part 2

You might have known this from a young age - most plants come from a seed. Part 1 of Seed Dispersal focused on the movement of seeds from the parent plant to different areas of the environment through gravity alone, as well as the involvement of wildlife and humans. Part 2, this resource, will hone in on three other ways that seeds are dispersed from the initial seed-producing plant - wind, water, and gravity.

Wild is the music of the autumnal winds amongst the faded woods.

William Wordsworth

Fall is a perfect time to get outside and we hope that our November articles will inspire your next open-air explorations and prompt your further investigations.  This is a busy time for nature, and we will highlight just a few of the happenings that occur above our heads, on ground level, and even beneath our feet as the displays of color, beauty and activities contribute to the concert of autumnal abundance.
