Definition of anemochoric

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Monocromatico:

Seed dispersion by wind. This kind of dispersion consists on light seeds or fruits being carried by winds, assisted by special structures like wings and hairs.

Wind dispersed species live usually in open, grassy areas, or have their fruits on the tip of the branches, usualy above the higher branches of a forest for example, where wind blows harder. Good examples of how far anemochoric plants can get are orchids, pines and grasses, that naturally occur all around the world.
