|How do desert mistletoe seeds get "planted" in paloverde trees instead of in the soil?
This is a thinking question. What do you already know about seeds?
Here are two photographs that show other examples of the same thing.
Look in the very center of this photograph. How did this prickly pear get "planted" 60 feet off the ground in this tall saguaro?
Many plants that are not native to Sabino Canyon arrived on the wind, in some animal's fur, or on someone's clothing. The spikes on the cocklebur's fruits helped it hitchhike into the canyon.
