2 types of reproduction
Sexual and Asexual
cells that are genetically identical to the parent cell
Organisms that reproduce asexually cannot develop much variety, because they are "copying" the original organism exactly.
spores produced and released by specialized fruiting bodies, such as the edible portion of the familiar mushrooms, fungal spores germinate under optimal conditions
`consists of a relatively large, usually globe-shaped, underground bud with membraneous or fleshy overlapping leaves arising from a short stem
~are a source of food for the plant
~Bulb can develop into a new plant
short, thickened, mostly underground stem that constitutes the resting stage of certain seed plants
"eyes" of potatoes are buds that develop into a new plant
slender stems that grow over the surface of the ground giving rise to rocks and vertical branches at specialized points
a mode of reproduction by which offspring arise from a single organism, and inherit the genes of that parent only. The offspring are identical to each other and to the parent
separating into two new bodies; When prokaryotic organisms duplicate their genetic material and divide into two halves. EX: bacteria
When a new organism develops from an outgrowth or bud and remains attached as it grows, separating when it is mature. EX: yeast, hydra, tapeworms
When an organism is split into fragments, each of which develop into a new organism. EX: sea stars, planaria
Type of asexual reproduction in which new plants grow from vegetative parts such as roots, stems, and leaves
The ability to grow from limbs or organs. Asexual. Starfish.
Two parents join to form an offspring - meiosis
