Greetings, Your agency is one of the few that has been selected to come up with a solution to this nervewrecking problem that my country is facing. Plantasia is suffering. Trees in Plantasia are not growing, causing us to face a shortage in food and trees. Sources tell us that it could be due to the way the seeds are being dispersed. Time is running short and I hope that you can help us solve this problem. You may want to speak to my city officials to find out more about the various methods of dispersal.

Whoa! What a windy day to meet. Hello my young agent! Glad you took up the challenge to help Plantasia. Well, fruits and seeds which are dispersed by wind are normally dry, light, small and possesses wing-like structures or parachute-like structures. Maybe the reason why Plantasia’s trees are not growing is because the trees are located in a place where there is no wind, causing the fruits or seeds to be unable to be dispersed.

Splish Splash! As my name tells you, I am the water expert. It seems that Plantasia is having some plant issues. They must have planted tress which uses water as a form of dispersal in dry places. Do you know that fruits and seeds which are dispersed by water have a waterproof outer layer or fibrous husks to help stay afloat in water?

Ahhh... Nothing like a good split or explosion to cheer me up. Oh! You startled me. Plantasia is having a plant problem? If I were the mayor, I would plant the trees that uses splitting as a form of dispersal in wide open spaces. Fruits and seeds which are dispersed by this method have their fruit walls split open with a sudden force when they are ripe. Let me show you a show clip. Click on the button to see. Want some examples? Sure! Click on the button to see the examples that I have prepared for you.

Animals are such fantastic creatures. Beautiful and unique in every way. We must find ways to preserve our endangered animals. Oh! Excuse me, Plantasia is having some problems with their trees… I told the mayor that animals are important and he would not listen. Fruits and seeds that are dispersed by animals are juicy, fragrant, sweet or brightly coloured. The seeds are generally hard and indigestible. Some even comes with hooks or stiff hair.
