I was studying asexual reproduction in sponges and came across two website
- Wikipedia of Gemmule and there is a line....
Only Endogenous Types of Buds develop into New Sponges.
Then as I was reading this Website Sponges there is a Section 9.1. iii) Budding, in which, there is Two Parts i.e (a) Exogenous Budding and (b) Endogenous Budding
So now, I am a bit confused..... if only Endogenous Bud can give rise to New Sponges then why there is a section of exogenous budding i.e reproducing through exogenous buds,in the reproduction section of sponges, in this website sponges ? ISN'T that Contradiction?
