Advantages:

  • Genetic variation (the ability of organisms to adapt over time). Due to the fusing of gametes (one from each parent), the offspring displays a mixture of traits.
  • Two parents are required

Disadvantages:

  • Energy must be consumed to find a suitable mate.
  • Mutations may occur
  • Not as rapid and efficient as other forms of reproduction (eg binary fission)
  • Very few offspring produced at a time

What are the advantages and disadvantages of both asexual and sexual reproduction?

Asexual reproduction does not lead to genetic variations while sexual reproduction leads to genetic variations. In asexual reproduction there is no limitation/restrictions for gametes to be fertilized.In sexual reproduction if either of the gametes do not function/not present then the possibility of reproduction becomes nil.Asexual reproduction gives rise to multiple daughter cells from mother cells while sexual reproduction normally gives rise to only two daughter cells.
