Class Starters
  • What is asexual reproduction?
  • What are some things that reproduce asexually?
sexual vs asexual
Sexual vs. Asexual
  • Sexual reproduction is the creation of an offspring by fusion of a male gamete(sperm) and female gamete (egg) to form a zygote
  • Asexual reproduction is creation of offspring without the fusion of egg and sperm
asexual
Asexual
  • Produces offspring that are genetically identical to their parent
  • A new organism (sometimes more than one) is produced from only one organism.
    • Asexual reproduction = one parent.
variation
Variation

Note break:

  • Describe the types of variation that may result from asexual reproduction of a plant.
  • Organisms that reproduce asexually cannot develop much variety, because they are “copying” the original organism exactly.
asexual1
Asexual
  • The primary form of reproduction for single-celled organisms (ex: bacteria)
  • Many plants and fungi reproduce asexually as well.
  • Some animals reproduce asexually as well (sponges, hydras)
budding
Budding
  • Process by which a new-duplicate plant or animal begins to form at the side of the parent and enlarges until an individual is created.
  • Very common in plants
  • Benefits
    • Very rapid
fission
Fission
  • Also called binary fission.
  • Becoming two by division of the complete organism.
  • A type of cell division.
fragmentation
Fragmentation
  • Also known as regeneration
  • The ability to restore lost or damaged tissues, organs or limbs.
  • It is a common feature in invertebrates, like worms and starfish.
