Caption: Dandelion seed-head. Silhouette of a dandelion seed-head (Taraxacum sp. ). The seed-head, or clock, is covered in seeds. Each individual seed is attached to a parachute of fine hairs, known as a pappus, which is lifted from the seed head and carried away by the wind. This type of seed dispersal is typical of the Compositae, the family of plants to which the dandelion belongs.
