Asexual Reproduction


Amoeba can go through multiple fission

Asexual reproduction is faster, takes less energy, and doesn't need a partner. These are the benefits of asexual reproduction. Asexual reproduction has no genetic diversity, however, making the whole species vulnerable to a predator. Certain changes ini environment can be the species' demise.

Due to the exponential rate of reproduction in asexual organisms, one single cell of bacteria can produce one million cells in seven hours. (on average)

There are fast growing cells are found in our own body, such as skin cells. They are what make us grow, heal, and develop.

All asexual reproduction starts with one parent cell, which rapidly seperates its DNA and cytoplasm to split to its daughter cells.

Asexual reproduction is found rarely in animals with vertabrae, more commonly found in bacteria and invertabrates.

Offspring from an asexual parent will most likely be an exact copy, unless there is a genetic mutation. Those born from two parents sexually will always be different from parents, but keep a few traits.

Both daughter cells are identical; they will both reproduce asexually

There are some "superbacteria" that have become resistant to antibioics. They are a result of genetic muations in asexually reproducing cells.

Mushrooms will grow spores, which spread out and eventually grow into what we see as the mushroom.
