Contrast asexual and sexual reproduction and explain the advantages of each. Provide at least two examples of organisms that use each type of reproduction.

Feb 24th, 2015

Asexual reproduction requires only one parent and makes offspring that is genetically identical to that one parent.  Sexual reproduction requires two parents and the two parents both give genetic information to the offspring.

Fungi undergo fragmentation, where they make another organism genetically identical to themselves.  Bacteria undergo fission, where they essentially split themselves into two copies.

Humans undergo sexual reproduction.  Plants also often undergo sexual reproduction.
