Animal Development & Reproduction

''Animal Reproduction'' is the process by which organisms, both vertebrates, invertebrates, and everything in between, mate in order to produce genetically-similar offspring. Reproduction can occur sexually (through male and female) or asexually (performed within a singular organism).

''Animal Development'' encompasses all the psychological and physiological changes an organism undergoes from the initial phases of fertilizaton all the way to eventual death. In some species, such as a house fly, the entirety of development completes in just a few months (from egg to adult), whereas in species like turtles and coral reefs, the developmental cycle can last for many, many years.

-contrasting developmental processes between plants and animals; plants develop around the apical meristem whereas animal development is a continuous process of cell differentiation

-advantages and disadvantages of sexual and asexual reproduction *notice the one key difference - the energy expenditure during each type of reproduction

    I like how you organized the concepts. Especially, your chart about sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction helps me to understand the concept easily.
