WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REGENRATION AND FRAGMENTATION?(4 POINTS EACH)

Asked by sanrachna | 18th Feb, 2010, 01:33: PM

Expert Answer:

Fragmentation is only seen in multicellular organisms with a simple body organisation, On the other hand regeneration is observed in fully differentiated multicellular organisms.

Renegeration is the growing back of a lost part of the body of an organism. It is also used as a method of defence. Fragmentation is the unintentional cutting up of the body of an organism which each grows into different organism.

Renegeration is usually used as a method of defence whereas fragmentation is a mode of asexual reproduction.

Regeneration takes place with the help of certain specialized cells.

(The ability of organisms to replace their lost parts by growth is due to regeneration and not fragmentation.)
