a.Regeneration:
process by which a new plant can grow from a fragment of a non-reproductive structure (roots, stem, leaves) (Ex) cacti

b.Vegetative reproduction:
asexual reproduction in which stems, leaves, roots attach to the parent plant produce new individuals (Ex) large forests (aspen trees :Utah)

c.Structures for Vegetative reproduction
1.Stolons: plants sending out stems that grow horizontally along the ground (ex. strawberries)
2.Rhizomes: horizontal underground stems
3.Tubers: underground stem modified for storage (ex. potato)
4.Bulbs: underground stems surrounded by modified leaves adapted for storage (ex. onions)
