Fruits & Seed Dispersal Field Guide
This fold-out chart by the Field Studies Council is designed to explore what seeds and fruits are and 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.
This chart is part of the FSC’s range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups. Each chart is laminated to make it shower-proof and robust for use outdoors. This handy guide helps to explain and explore what seeds and fruits are and how they are formed and dispersed. The guides laminated surface can be cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth.
