Best Answer

reproduction is basically having a baby. Heredity is the traits that are passed down by the parents to the offspring (the baby). They are similar because when you reproduce and receive a child, heredity will make them look and on occasions act like the parents. They kind of work together in a way. It's kind of hard to explain, do you get it?
