This study shows that wind speed and direction strongly determine the dispersal process of floating seeds and resulting deposition patterns in lentic waters. Local seed banks in riparian zones reflected the prevailing wind conditions poorly. Further, wind-driven dispersal of floating seeds proved to be a relatively fast process, resulting in long distance dispersal, especially at quiet wind conditions.
