Use of Language

The use of language, when it comes to the invasion of vegetation does not help with our perception of the natural word. It is interesting to note, that dispersal of seeds is a plants natural way of helping their offspring success with the best forms of dispersal method. Unfortunately when you look up the definition of dispersal is says

"Seed dispersal is the movement or transport of seeds away from the parent plant. Plants have very limited mobility and consequently rely upon a variety of dispersal vectors to transport their propagules, including both abiotic and biotic vectors. Seeds can be dispersed away from the parent plant individually or collectively, as well as dispersed in both space and time. The patterns of seed dispersal are determined in large part by the dispersal mechanism and this has important implications for the demographic and genetic structure of plant populations, as well as migration patterns and species interactions. There are five main modes of seed dispersal: gravity, wind, ballistic, water, and by animals, (and Human). Some plants are serotinous and only disperse their seeds in response to an environmental stimulus."

I am still having a hard time understanding, why humans are left out of the definition, for are they too an agent in all this?
