is bud a vegetative part of a plant?Name some seeds thet are dispersed by water.Are cacti reproduced by fragmentation?how does seed dispersal help plants?
- Yes, Regeneration of new plants from the vegetative parts of the parent plant is called vegetative propagation. It is done with the help of vegetative parts such as roots, stem, buds and leaves.
- Water lily, Palm, Coconut seeds are dispersed by water.
- Cacti reproduce both sexually and asexually. The sexual reproduction involves normal pollination and seed dispersal processes like in other plants. Their flowers have both male and female parts. Its pollen must fertilize an egg cell in the female part of the plant for reproduction. Asexual reproduction occurs by detached joints, cuttings and cell propagation. It includes scions in grafting which produce roots after they have separated from the parent plant.
- Seed dispersal helps plants to prevent overcrowding, avoid competition for sunlight, minerals and water and invade new habitats.
