An organism consisting of a cell or cells in which DNA is in the form of chromosomes contained with a distinct nucleus.
The major group of animals are classified under the Kingdom Animalia, also known as Metazoa. All the members of the kingdom are multicellular, eukaryotes. They are heterotrophs, they depend on other organisms directly or indirectly for food.

Reproduction is a process by which an organism produces offspring, or young
The organism or organisms resulting from sexual or asexual reproduction.
Asexual reproduction is a type of reproduction where the offspring is an exact replica of the single organism parent
A form of asexual reproduction in plants, in which multicellular structures become detached from the parent plant
Budding is when a smaller version of the parent organism grows out of the parent
A kind of asexual reproduction that has an organisim split into two halves creating two new cells
a cell that is genetically identical to the individual it was made from
It is when each parent, male and female contributes half of their genetics/DNA to the offspring. The male contributes his sperm cell and the female contributes her egg cell. When they combine they make the offspring
A quality or characteristic of a parent that is passed down to the offspring
A trait that will appear in the offspring, even if it is only present in one parent.
Trait that is masked by dominant trait
Stamen: The pollen producing part of a flower, usually with a slender filament supporting the anther.
Anther: The part of the stamen where pollen is produced.
Pistil: The ovule producing part of a flower. The ovary often supports a long style, topped by a stigma. The mature ovary is a fruit, and the mature ovule is a seed.
Stigma: The part of the pistil where pollen germinates.
Powdery grains that contain the male reproductive cells of most plants
