Origin of gemma
Examples from the Web for gemmae
The gemmae formed on submerged Mucors may bud like a yeast, and even bring about alcoholic fermentation in a saccharine solution.
Erect branches may arise from the protonema, and gemmae may be developed on it.
Usually the gemmae arise by the outgrowth of superficial cells, and become free by breaking away from their stalk.
