Only 14 bird species that swallowed the seeds could be confirmed as seed dispersers among all 27 seed-eating bird species (Table I), many birds pecked the pulp of the seeds on the tree and did not carry the seeds away from mother tree, so they were not classed as effective dispersers.
Running at tip speeds up to around 5,000 ft/min, the open disc blade of the High-Speed Disperser generates vigorous flow and a characteristic vortex into which dry ingredients are added for quick wet-out.

The PDDM is a multi-agitator mixer featuring two planetary stirrer blades and two high speed disperser shafts.
The cryptic color of fruit functions mainly to attract the attention of potential dispersers that use vision as the key sense to search for food, influencing the selective pressure by birds at foraging (Wheelwright & Janson 1985, Willson et al.
Abstract A new headless disperser, an ultra-thin film high-shear disperser (UFHD), was developed, and the flow in its dispersion part (a flow between rotating and stationary rings) was simulated using the finite difference lattice Boltzmann method (FDLBM).
Disc dispersers are used to detach and comminute recalcitrant ink in paper recycling operations.
Netzsch fine-grinding equipment includes dry grinding and classification machines, wet media mills, mixers, dispersers and de-aerators.

In all studies, pre-reproductive males (juveniles primarily) were found to be the predominant dispersers, with rates up to 100%.
The categories of planktonic duration used in the ANOVA were as follows: (1) species that produce propagules, which are competent to settle within one day of release (hereafter referred to as short-range dispersers); (2) species that release nonfeeding lecithotrophic larvae, which spend greater than one but [less than]15 d in the plankton (hereafter referred to as intermediate-range dispersers); and (3) species that release planktotrophic larvae, which feed for [geq]15 d in the plankton before they become competent to settle on the bottom (hereafter referred to as long-range dispersers).
