Thanks for the feedback!
A whole new organism can grow from just a piece of the parent in animals that have the ability to what?
A whole new organism can grow from just one piece of the parent in animals that have the ability to asexually reproduce. This is reproduction with one parent.
It is called budding. It is when a parent organism produces a bud like formation on it's body with it's genetic information. This happens in plants, sea sponges and some other… organisms that reproduce asexually. Yes, this is a type of asexual reproduction. Meaning that a single parent organism is producing the offspring. There is no contribution from another organism, just one parent organism replicating it's traits so they can be passed on to their offspring. Another kind is called splicing. It is when you take a special kind of tape (the actual name of it slipped my mind) and you adhere the clipping of, say an orange plant to a lemon plant. It will grow off part of an organism, now made it's parent organism, but it will produce mixed fruits. There is also when a starfish loses it's body, and there is just an arm left. It can regenerate a new body, just like a lizard can regenerate it's tail! These are all types of asexual reproduction.
In the plant kingdom it is called budding. (Research yeast)
Yes. This is the process of asexual reproduction. Two examples are: when a starfish has one of it's points removed, cut off, or otherwise, un-attached, the dismembered point w…ill then grow into a completely new starfish of the same species with the exact same D.N.A and genetic material as the parent starfish, because asexual reproduction passes the exact same genes off to the newborn. As opposed to sexual reproduction, like with humans. When we have a child, the genes are taken from half of one parent and half of the other to leave the actual genes up to chance, working from those that have come from the parent. My other example is that, once a bacterial organism has reached the stage at which to reproduce, the newborn will break off of the parent cell, in the famous process of multiplication among bacteria.
Sounds like you're talking about a parasite.
What is the type of asexual reproduction that creates a new organism that grows from the body of the parent organism?
Budding; yeast is a good example.
