is term clone aaplicable to offspring formed by vegetative propagation ?
Vegetative propagation is a mode of asexual reproduction in which new plants are obtained from the vegetative parts of plants. It does not involve the production of seeds or spores for the propagation of new plants. Vegetative parts of plants such as runners, rhizomes, suckers, tubers, etc. can be used as propagules for raising new plants.
As a result, the offsprings so produced are morphologically and genetically similar to their parents and are thus, called clones.
