Donald D. Tapio Commentary: Winning the Weed Battle – Life – The Chronicle

http://m.chronline.com/life/article_275f857c-1fbe-11e3-88e9-001a4bcf887a.html?mode=jqm.This article mentions the large number of seeds that weeds produce and the opportunity to produce more weeds.I would like to also tag along here and add the many ways these seeds can populate.The following are ways-some obvious and some are not-seeds can move:wind,water,the ocean,sudd-Arabic word meaning barrier(i.e., water hyanciath),animals-both ingestion and sticking to fur/feathers,insects,mechanical dispersal(i.e., impatients), and humans.I believe weeds protect the Earth where humans fail to so.
