17 Asexual Reproduction

  1. 1. Asexual Reproduction
  2. 2. Reproduction without sex <ul><li>Binary fission in prokaryotic microbes </li></ul><ul><li>Mitosis in the somatic cells of eukaryotes </li></ul><ul><li>Spore formation in fungi </li></ul><ul><li>Natural cloning in animals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Budding in sponges and corals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>‘ virgin births’ in insects </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Vegetative reproduction in plants (eg. runners, cuttings and rhizomes) </li></ul>
  3. 3. Binary fission in bacteria <ul><li>Much faster than mitosis in eukaryotic cells </li></ul><ul><li>Takes approx. 20 mins as opposed to several hours </li></ul><ul><li>If resources were available once cell could become 16,000,000 in 8 hours! </li></ul>
