Best Answer

Xanthium has hairy and seeds with hooks that get easily stuck in the fur and hide of animals and get dispersed far off places . They also get dispersed by wind . When climatic conditions are favourable , they burst open by the explosive mechanism and are transported far off places and germinate into new plants.
