Flashcards in B12- Reproduction Deck (12)
What is sexual reproduction involve?
Sexual reproduction involves the joining (fusion) of the male and female gametes formed by meiosis
What does sexual reproduction lead to?why?(plants and animals)
leads to the formation of non-identical cells, sperm and egg cells in animals, and pollen and egg cells in flowering plants because of Meiosis
What is asexual reproduction?
In asexual reproduction, there is no no fusion of gametes and only one parent
What does asexual reproduction lead to?why?
Leads to genetically identical offsprings (clones) because there is no mixing of genetic information as only mitosis is involved
What are the main type of organisms that reproduce sexually?
What are the main type of organisms that reproduce asexually?
Are versions of a gene
Two identical alleles e.g BB or bb
Two different alleles e.g Bb, bB
Describes the physical appearance due to genotypes (black fur or brown fur)
Describes the alleles present or genetic material make up (homozygous or heterozygous)
