Transcript of Differences Between Asexual and Sexual Reproduction

Budding is similar to binary fission, but it is used by plants and some animals, which cannot simply split in half as bacteria can. It is when a small part of a plant or animal breaks off and then, while they are separated from their "mother", they start to grow until both the "parent" and the "offspring" are the same size and both are capable of budding again. This may happen many more times
Example of an organisms that reproduces asexually
Asexual reproduction.
Sexual reproduction is a way of reproduction of some animals and plants. Some protists and fungi also reproduce this way. Organisms that reproduce sexually have two different sexes: male and female.

Offspring is made by a cell from the male and a cell of the female. Different steps are involved in the process.

multi-cellular organisms most commonly reproduce sexually
The cells of an animal or higher plant have two sets of chromosomes: they are diploid. When gametes (sex cells) are produced, they have only one set of chromosomes: they are haploid. They have undergone a process of cell division called meiosis. During meiosis, crossing over occurs. This makes it possible to get recombination. This has various consequences. It means, for example, that all the children of two parents are not identical, except in the rare case where they developed from the same fertilized egg.
the most common is fungi/spores

Fungi (for example, mushrooms) produce spores, which may be asexual or sexual. The asexual spores have the genetic material inside, which allows them to make a whole new organism identical to its parent.

Sexual Reproduction
there are organisms that reproduce both sexually and asexually
Differences Between Asexual and Sexual Reproduction
Asexual reproduction is reproduction without sex.
During this form of reproduction a single organism or cell makes an exact copy of itself.
the genes of the original and copy, except for rare mutations. They are clones. The main process of asexual reproduction is mitosis. This type of reproduction is common among some single-cell organisms, for example, amoeba. Many plants also reproduce asexually
Asexual Reproduction
There are 2 types of Asexual reproduction
Binary fission
Binary fission is a method of asexual reproduction. It is common in prokaryotes. A living cell divides into two cells. The two cells should be identical, but since mutation can occur, there might be slight differences. This process is basically when a prokaryotic organism divides into two parts. The parent cell divides to give rise to two daughter cells, the daughter cells then each develop into individual parent cells and give rise to two more daughter cells EACH, and so on and so forth.
plants and single-celled organisms are very commonly an asexually reproducing organism
