Nature’s primary goal is to survive and reproduce. For many plants, they package their future into seeds that are dispersed into the world with the aim of populating new environments. The oldest seed-bearing plants arose between 416 million to 358 million years ago. Over time, plants have found new ways to package their seeds and have learned to saddle them onto different vehicles, with the singular hope that the next generation will prosper wherever they land.
