I have heard about two terms stating similar things - Fission and Fragmentation . I know Amoeba undergoes fission and Fragmentation is done by spirogyra. So what's the main difference between them?

  • $\begingroup$ As far as I remember yeast undergoes budding (in fact even hydra does). Have never heard of amoebae budding. Wasn't the amoeba thing plain old binary fission? $\endgroup$ – Polisetty Mar 7 '16 at 17:08
