After maturity the seeds and fruits dispered by wind are small and light.They have certain adaptations for dispersal.
Censer mechansim: In plants like poppy the seeds come out from minute pores.The pores are so narrow that only some seeds can disperse at a time.
Parachute mechanism: Certain seeds and fruits are provided with appendages which act like parachute in helping them float in air..
