Reproduction
By: Darcy Davis, Kara Kime,

Types of Reproduction
Sexual- involves the fusion of two
special cells called gametes, sperm and
eggs, one from each type of gender.
 Asexual- reproducing without the
interaction of two sexes or genders.

Examples
Asexual- budding, sponges, starfish,
bacteria, starfish.
 Sexual- humans, most mammals except
for platypi.

Differences

Sexual- 2 parents one male, one female,
genetically different, new characteristics
introduced, cells produced by meiosis.
 Asexual- 1 parent, genetically identical, no
new characteristics introduced, cells
produced by mitosis.
Similarities
Both types form an offspring.
 Both pass traits when they reproduce.
 Both are ways to produce new
individuals.

Mitosis and Meiosis
Mitosis- Asexual reproduction, a cell is
formed that is identical to the first cell.
 Meiosis- Sexual reproduction, sex cells
are formed with half the chromosomes
of a normal cell.

Why is reproduction necessary?
New individuals can be produced.
 New characteristics are introduced into
the genetic community.
 Species will continue its existence.
 New characteristics are introduced so
that they can hopefully improve an
organism’s chance for survival, in
sexual reproduction.
