The process in which the nucleus first divides amitotically into two followed by the division of the cytoplasm is called
Binary fission is a kind of asexual reproduction. In binary fission, the fully grown parent cell splits into two halves, producing two pools.
Which of the following organisms shows budding?
Since the reproduction is asexual, the newly created organism is a clone and is genetically identical to the parent organism. Organisms such as hydrause regenerative cells for reproduction in the process of budding. In hydra, a bud develops as an outgrowth due to repeated cell division at one specific site.
New plants can be produces without the help of any reproductive organ by:
Natural vegetative propagation occurs when an axillary bud grows into a lateral shoot and develops its own roots. Plant structures allowing natural vegetative propagation include bulbs, rhizomes, stolons and tubers.
A benefit of plant grown by vegetative propagation is :
In vegetative propagation, once you have a plant with desirable traits, you can reproduce the same traits indefinitely, as long as the growing conditions remain similar.This can also help to maintain consistent quality and taste in products made from plants or crops.
Short and swollen underground stems containing stored food are called
An underground stem axis with swollen base and enclosed by dry scale like leaves is called as corm. The corm is a solid modified stem that has few fleshy leaves. It is a swollen stem which stores food to survive winter, summer drought and heat.
