What is the difference between budding and fragmentation?

  • 1

Budding is a form of asexual reproduction in which an outgrowth of the parent becomes constricted and eventually separates to form a new individual, as occurs in invertebrates and yeasts.Budding is another method of asexual reproduction in which a group of self-supportive cells sprouts from and then detaches from the parent organism

Fragmentation method by which plants reproduce asexually—that is, without the union of cells or nuclei of cells—thus producing individuals that are genetically identical to the parent. Vegetative reproduction takes place either by fragmentation or by special asexual structures. Parts of liverworts and mosses fragment from the parent and grow into new individuals, as do plant cuttings
