What could be more transient than a Burdock Burr?
They sit there and wait until someone or something comes along and then they hook on, getting a ride until they are either picked off or rubbed off.
I’m sure a good strong wind can disperse these velcro-like seed pods too.
I’ve picked countless of burrs off my dog and myself; sometimes a few meters away from the parent plant, and sometimes kilometres away. They lay scattered on the ground to take up new residence, grow a new plant, and make burrs again. They cycle continues, just in new places and new habitats.
