Asexual Reproduction

John W. Kimball

From the author of Kimball's Biology textbook, this online chapter presents modes of asexual reproduction in plants and animals. Asexual reproduction in plants includes stems, leaves, roots, plant propagation and apomixis, whereas the animal section includes budding, fragmentation and parthenogenesis. The chapter is supported with a general discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of asexual reproduction.
