The cell wall may be an important feature of budding versus fission.   
If a yeast cell divides by fission, the cell wall must be relatively  
elastic to allow the increase in cell mass.  However, a "hardened"  
cell wall - although it provides more structural support- may not  
allow much cell growth.  Perhaps S. cerevisiae has a more rigid,  
stronger cell wall than S. pombe.  Does anyone know if S. cerevisiae  
is more hardy than S. pombe?


Please note that I did NOT ask whether cerevisiae is better than
