Explain the special features that help in seed dispersal in the following plants:- a)Coconut b)Balsam  c)Xanthium  d)Cotton

Dear student.

Seeds of Xanthium have hooks or spines which help them stick to the fur of animals or to our clothes and get carried away. 

The coconut seed has a thick coat of fibre that enables it to float in water. 

In balsam, fruits burst with sudden jerks, as a result of which seeds are dispersed and scattered far away.  

Cotton seeds are light and bear hair and fiber on its surface as a result of which it can be easily dispersed by winds.
