In asexual reproduction, there is only one parent. The young is an exact copy of the parent. They are a genetically identical group, because their development is controlled by a signal set of genes. The young is a clone of the parent. Most unicellular organisms reproduce asexually. For example, an amoeba reproduces by dividing itself into 2 cells.
Some multi-cellular organisms also reproduce asexually. Hydras and sea anemones reproduce by growing buds. A bud starts off as a swelling. Tentacles, a mouth and a gut are then developed. When fully developed, the young splits from the parent.
In sexual reproduction, there are two parents. The male and the female reproductive cells are joined together to give birth to a young. Young produced by sexual reproduction differ from their parents because their development is controlled by a mixture of genes from both parents. Fertilization occurs in two ways. In external fertilization, the eggs are joined outside the female's body. Most fish reproduce through external fertilization. Insects, reptiles, birds, mammals and plants reproduce through internal fertilization. In this case, the eggs are fertilized inside the female's body.
The fertilized the egg forms into an embryo. The embryo then develops into an offspring.
Asexual reproduction involves 1 parent ,whereas sexual reproduction involves 2 parents. So asexual reproduction only passes on those genes that the parent has and the offspring is an exact copy of the parent, called a clone. But the offspring of two parents inherits genes from two different individuals and is not a clone of either but unique .
♥ Sexual Reproduction is the process by which a new organism develops from joining of male sperm cell and a female egg cell while the Asexual Reproduction is the process by which a single organism produces a new organism identical to itself.
In sexual reproduction there are 2 parents and in asexual reproduction there is 1 parent.
Asexual has only one parent. Usually occurs in plants. An identical clone.
Sexual has two parents. Usually occurs in animals. Gets it genes combined from both the mother and father.
The difference isthat asexual rproduction only needs 1 parent being the offspring will be a clone where as sexual reproduction needs 2 parents and offspring will be a mix of the parents
Please give a definition of asexual reproduction and sexual reproduction
