The rudimentary or resting end or branch of a stem; usually referring to the stage in which the growing tips pass the winter or dry season; also applied to undeveloped flowers or flower clusters. Scaly buds are protected by modified leaves or stipules. Naked buds lack such special protection. Usually one bud occurs in each axil or angle above a leaf, but these often branch and collateral buds, standing side by side, are thus produced; in some plants (walnuts, honeysuckle) several buds occur one above the other (superposed) in an axil.
(1) In plants, an embryonic shoot, including rudimentary leaves, often protected by special bud scales. (2) In animals, an asexually produced outgrowth that develops into a new individual. budding An asexual means of propagation in which outgrowths from the parent form and pinch off to live independently or else remain attached to eventually form extensive colonies. buffer A substance that consists of acid and base forms in solution and that minimizes changes in pH when extraneous acids or bases are added to the solution. bulb A modified bud with thickened leaves adapted for underground food storage. bulbourethral gland( bul-bo-you- ree-thral) One of a pair of glands near the base of the penis in the human male that secrete fluid that lubricates and neutralizes acids in the urethra during sexual arousal.

A region of meristematic tissue with the potential for developing into leaves, shoots, flowers or combinations; generally protected by modified scale leaves. A terminal (or apical) bud exists at the tip of a stem or branch, while axillary (or lateral) buds develop in the axils of leaves.
Botany: 1. A small protuberance on a stem or branch, sometimes enclosed in protective scales and containing an undeveloped shoot, leaf, or flower. . The stage or condition of having buds: branches in full bud. [Middle English budde.
The tightly wrapped structure that contains miniaturized forms of leaves and stems (vegetative bud) which may open at a later date or remain dormant forever, or flowers (floral bud) which open the following spring.
In botany, a bud is an undeveloped or embryonic shoot and normally occurs in the axil of a leaf or at the tip of the stem. Once formed, a bud may remain for some time in a dormant condition, or it may form a shoot immediately.
Bud is a fictional character in the (called Transformers: Galaxy Force in Japan) cartoon series. He is normally voiced by Ryan Hirakida in Cybertron, although in some episodes his voice was performed by another actor. He is voiced by Nami Kurokawa in Galaxy Force.
Big Useful Dish. This is usually a large satellite dish that can be 10 feet wide and greater. These dishes are used for receiving C/Ku band transmissions and are generally only used by movie freaks and home theater dealers. However, don't let this stop you. The available programming from a C/Ku band is very reasonable and costs much less per year then from other sources. The only problem is the initial installment can cost you an arm and a leg
To graft, as a plant with another or into another, by inserting a bud from the one into an opening in the bark of the other, in order to raise, upon the budded stock, fruit different from that which it would naturally bear.
