basic difference between fragmentation and regeneration
Asked by Simon | 14th Nov, 2015, 09:00: PM
- Renegeration is the growing back of a lost part of the body of an organism.
- Fragmentation is breaking up of the organism into smaller pieces upon maturation. These pieces or fragments grow into new individuals.
- In Regeneration, either a part of the body that is broken off or cut or the entire body can be regenerated. Example of regeneration of part of the body - Lizards cast off their tails to escape predators and then regenerate them. Regeneration of complete body is seen in small invertebrates such as Planaria and Hydra.
- In fragmentation, an organism is split into fragments. Each of these fragments develop into mature, fully grown individuals that are a clone of the original organism. It is most commonly seen in some algae.
