What is the difference between asexual reproduction and vegetative reproduction?
- In Asexual reproduction, new plants are obtained without production of seeds. It occurs in unisexual plants. Various methods of asexual reproduction are Vegetative propagation, budding, fragmentation and spore formation.
- In Vegetative propagation, new plans are obtained from leaves, stems and roots. For example, rose, sugarcane etc from stem, bryophyllum from leaf, dahelia from roots.
Asexual reproduction is a mode of reproduction by which offsprings arise from a single parent and inherit the genes of that parent only. In this reproduction the offsprings are identical to their parent
When new plants are produced from the vegetative part of the mother plant such as root stem or leaves without the help of any reproductive organs it is known as vegetative reproduction.
Asexual reproduction is a mode of reproduction by which offspring arise from a single parent, and inherit the genes of that parent only; it is reproduction which does not involve meiosis or fertilization.
Vegetative reproduction (vegetative propagation, vegetative multiplication, vegetative cloning) is a form of asexual reproduction in plants. It is a process by which new individuals arise without production of seeds or spores.
