Propagation mechanisms of plants

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The wild strawberry uses the endochory , the barochory and the blastochory as propagation mechanisms .

The propagation mechanisms of plants are investigated by chorology in collaboration with plant physiology .

The component -chory of the terms goes back to Greek χώρα, chóra , “land, space” from ancient Greek χωρίς, “without, separate” and includes all types of spread such as seed spread , propagation via self-cuttings and spread by humans, that is also all aspects of the carry-over and horticultural plant propagation .
