Sexual and Asexual Reproduction

All forms of life – from simple to complex – share an ability and instinct to reproduce. Reproduction occurs either sexually through an exchange of genetic material between two organisms, or asexually where organisms replicate producing offspring with an identical genetic makeup to their parent. This program looks at sexual and asexual reproduction, starting at the cellular level, with clear explanations of meiosis and mitosis. Using a range of graphics and footage to explain biological processes, it explores various types of asexual reproduction, including fission, budding, fragmentation, spores, vegetative and artificial propagation. Sexual reproduction in animals is covered – including direct and indirect development – as well as sexual reproduction in flowering plants. Finally, various benefits and disadvantages of both types of reproduction are examined. This is an ideal resource for senior level students of Biology and allied subjects, including Health and Human Development. It explains some difficult concepts well, with effective use of visual media.
