Explain budding in Hydra with the help of diagrams only.

Answer :

Budding in Hydra.


Hydra reproduces by budding which is an asexual type of reproduction.


During this type of reproduction, a bulb like projection arises from the parent body which is known as bud. The bud may be unicellular formed by mitotic division of its cells. This bud then grows gradually to from a small hydra. And finally, the tiny new hydra detaches items from the body of the parent hydra lives as a separate organism. Thus, the parents hydra produces a new hydra. . Hydra is a plant which reproduces by asexual mode of reproduction known as Budding.


The various steps involved in budding in hydra are as follows:


1. Arising of bulb like projection from the body of parent called as ‘bud’. The bud is single celled and is formed by mitotic division.


2. Growing of bud to form a small hydra


3. Detaching of bud from the parent hydra into a separate individual.
