  • Even some metazoan animals regularly reproduce by budding. Example is certain cnidarian species.
  • Budding is a kind of asexual reproduction.
  • Budding is most frequently used to multiply a variety that cannot be produced from seed.
  • In the Budding process, a new individual form a bulb-like projection, bud, grows and gets detached from the parent to form a new individual.
  • In some species buds may be produced from almost any point of the body, but in many cases budding is restricted to specialized areas.
