Adventitious Bud

An adventitious bud is a bud that grows from a part of a plant that is not the usual site of bud formation, such as the stem, root, or leaf. Adventitious buds can develop in response to various stimuli, such as injury, pruning, or environmental changes. Adventitious buds can help plants to regenerate damaged tissues, produce new branches or leaves, or propagate vegetatively. Some examples of plants that produce adventitious buds are willows, poplars, elms, and ginkgoes.
