involves the duplication of chromosomes and cell division to produce identical cells--each with the diploid (2n) number of chromosomes= 46 or 23 pair (in humans) Asexual reproduction is associated with mitosis since no sex cells are involved--only one cell dividing to become two identical cells.
involves specialized sex cells called gametes--male=sperm;female=egg. The chromosome number is reduced by half to produce gametes with the haploid number (n) =23, so that when egg and sperm joinm the result zygote has 23 chromosomes from its father and 23 from its mother=46 chromosomes. Sexual reproduction is involved with meiosis sice two parents are required.
