Abstract: Plant dispersal strategies: a new classification based on the multiple dispersal modes of individual species.-Preslia 90: 1-22 The diaspores of vascular plants are transported by vectors from which the dispersal modes are inferred, such as anemochory as a spread by wind. Traditionally, each species was assigned a single dispersal mode, based on the morphology of its diaspore; for example the presence of pappus indicated anemochory. In this paper we present a different approach to plant dispersal, based on the …
