Asexual Reproduction: Definition, Types and Examples in Animals & Plants examples of sexual and asexual reproduction


Asexual reproduction is a type of reproduction by which offspring arise from a single organism, and inherit the genes of that parent only; it does not involve the fusion of gametes, and almost never changes the number of eazye.infol reproduction is the primary form of reproduction for single-celled organisms such as archaea and eazye.info plants and fungi sometimes reproduce asexually.

Reproduction can happen in two main ways: asexual reproduction, which requires only one parent, and sexual reproduction, which needs gametes, or sex cells, from a male and a female made by the process of meiosis. Both have advantages and disadvantages, but in terms of evolution, sexual reproduction seems a better bet.

Reproduction is a marvelous culmination of individual transcendence in that organisms "transcend" time through the reproduction of offspring. In animal organisms, reproduction can occur by two primary processes: asexual reproduction and sexual reproduction.

Examples of asexual reproduction Asexual reproduction in plants There are many examples of asexual reproduction in plants, e.g. the spider plant Chlorophytum which produces plantlets on stolons branching from buds in the parent plant. Bryophyllum (Kalanchoe) has plantlets (with dangling roots) along the edges of its leaves. These easily become detached and grow.
