    ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION

    Asexual is the type of reproduction in which new organisms are produced from a single parent without the production of gametes. The offspring called the clones are the same in all respects to each other and to the parent organisms that produced them.   General Forms of Asexual Reproduction There are four major forms or methods of asexual reproduction. These are binary fission, budding, spore formation and vegetative reproduction. 1) Binary fission: Binary fission is a process of asexual reproduction in unicellular organism in which a single cell (parent) divides into two equal parts by mitosis to produce two new daughter cells. Examples are found in protozoa like Amoeba, Paramecium…

    Reproduction is the ability of living organisms to give rise to new individuals of the same species. The purpose of reproduction is to ensure the continuity of life.   Types of Reproduction There are two main types of reproduction. These are asexual and sexual reproduction.   Sexual Reproduction Sexual reproduction is the type of reproduction which involves the fusion of the male gametes and the female gametes to form a zygote which later develops to a young offspring. In other words, in sexual reproduction, offspring are produced by fusion of two different sex cells (gametes) which usually come from two different parents.   Types of Sexual Reproduction There are two…
