regeneration

the replacement of tissues (for example, the growth of hair or nails) or repair of tissues or organs lost through damage. In animals, the degree of regeneration varies from group to group but is generally more extensive in the lower phyla. In plants, regeneration is common and used extensively in VEGETATIVE PROPAGATION.
