RAINFOREST FRUIT
Rainforest plants have various ways of ensuring that their seeds reach new ground far from the parent plant. Many are encased in edible fruit, whose devourer will eventually expel the seeds surrounded by fertiliser. Rainforest fruits may contain antibiotics which protect the seeds against bacteria or substances which repel animals unsuitable for seed dispersal.
