Brood body: in mosses, reduced, detachable organs of vegetative reproduction of two types: the propagulum,-i (s.n.II), q.v., which are reduced buds, leaves or branches, and the gemma,-ae (s.f.I), q.v., which is septate and globose, ellipsoidal, cylindric to filamentous in shape; see gemma,-ae (s.f.I), propagulum,-i (s.n.II).

Brood bud: (in lichens), the soredium; see sorede.

- a Keria praeterea defectu stipularum et numero gemmularum discernitur(F. Mueller), moreover, it is distinguished from Keria by the lack of stipules and by the number of the ovaries.

- gemmulae ex apice loculi suspensae (F. Mueller), the ovules suspended from the apex of the locule.
