The offspring of a sexually-reproducing organism receives?

half of its genetic material from each parent.


Variation of offspring of sexually reproducing organism is the direct result of?

Half of its genetic material from each parent. =o)


What does the offspring of a sexually reproducing organism receives?

One half of each parent's chromosomes, and genetic variation, as opposed to those that reproduce asexually - the cells just split, so each generation afterward is genetically identical to the parent.


Why are chromosome numbers in sexually reproducing organisms usually an even number?

In the cells of most organisms that reproduce sexually, chromosomes occur in pairs: One chromosome is inherited from the female parent, and one is inherited from the male parent.


What is the result of a organism reproducing through budding?

one new offspring that is identical to the parent from k12


What is the difference between asexually and sexually?

Sexual Reproduction is the process by which a new organism develops from joining of male and female sex cells (sperm and ova respectively). An organism that reproduces sexually requires a partner, with the offspring sharing characteristics from each parent. Asexual Reproduction is the process by which a single organism produces a new organism identical to itself. An asexually reproducing organism does not require a partner to produce offspring. Examples include bacteria, nonflowering plants and some reptiles.


Gametes have how many sets of chromosomes?

Gametes, the sex cells, have only one set of chromosomes. The process in which a gamete from two sexually reproducing organisms fuse is called fertilization and creates a new organism with one set of chromosomes from each parent.


Which best describes the result of an organism reproducing through budding?

one new offspring that is identical to the parent


How are asexual produced offspring different from sexually produced offspring?

The difference is with an asexually produced organism, the organism is created using only one parent. With a sexually produced organism, the organism is produced using two parents


What are the differences between sexual and asexual offspring?

asexual offsprings are exactly alike with their parent.they show little variation so little chance for survival during struggles created by naturetheir number is more than sexually reproducing organism


Where do you get chromosomes from?

Chromosomes are inherited from parents - in sexually reproducing organisms, such as humans - half of the chromosomes come from each parent.You get chromosomes from nucleus of the cell.

What parent cell produces cells with only one set of chromosomes haploid or n?

all sexually reproducing diploid organisms produces gametes, which have only 1 set of chromosome. these gametes are produced from germline tissue of parent. these gametes further fuses and gives rise to zygote, which through many developmental processes forms a complete diploid organism.


What are the disadvantages of sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction?

Because sexual reproduction requires a partner for an organism to be capable of reproducing, a colony of said organisms will die out if there is a lack of fertile partners. However, asexual reproduction does not require a partner, so asexual organisms do not have this problem. A disadvantage of asexual reproduction can be seen in one of its key features: the offspring produced will be genetically identical to the parent organism. If the parent organism suffers from a genetic defect, then all offspring produced by that organism (and its offspring, etc, etc.) will carry this genetic defect. Sexually reproducing organisms, however, have a greatly diminished risk of inheriting a genetic defect (assuming it is held by only one parent). This is because the offspring inherit a mix of genes from both parents, so with each generation it is likely that any genetic defects present will be "bred out".


Reproduction is the life activity described as?

Love making; The creation of new life from parent organism; Sharing of thoughts; Reproducing another version of yourself.


What is reproducing asexually?

Reproducing asexually is reproducing with one parent, and therefore creating two totally identical organisms. Bacteria, archaea, and a few other species reproduce asexually while plants, animals, fungi, and most protists reproduce sexually. Although plants may self-pollinate, this is not the same as asexually reproduction, because the offspring still may not be exactly like the parent because of genetics, so self-pollination is a type of sexual reproduction.


What organism uses mitosis to reproduce?

Eukaryotic organisms use mitosis to reproduce sexually. In mitosis, the parent cell is divided into two daughter cells which be identical to the parent cell.


What is a new organism produced by one or more parents?

A new organism that is produced by a parent is called an offspring. Some organisms reproduce asexually while others reproduce sexually.


Compare sexual and asexual?

Sexual Reproduction is the process by which a new organism develops from joining of male and female sex cells (sperm and ova respectively). An organism that reproduces sexually requires a partner, with the offspring sharing characteristics from each parent. Examples include mammals, most reptiles, and flowering plants. Asexual Reproduction is the process by which a single organism produces a new organism identical to itself. An asexually reproducing organism does not require a partner to produce offspring. Examples include bacteria, nonflowering plants and some reptiles.


Asexual reproduction is represented by?

The method of reproducing offspring by only one parent is called asexual reproduction. All of the genetic information comes from a single organism. This is represented by vegetable and plant reproduction.


Are animals haploid or diploid?

From a text book.. diploid cell- In an organism that reproduses sexually, a cell containing two homologous sets of chromosomes, one set of inherited from each parent; a 2n cell haploid cell- In the life cycle of an organism that reproduces sexually, a cell containing a single set of chromosomes; an n cell ...diploid?


How many alleles does a parent pass on for each gene?

Only one allele of that gene. remember, meiosis halves the genetic material so that in sperm and egg there is a haploid count and only half the genetic material is passed on to the children; one half from each parent is is proper in sexually reproducing species. ( generally )


What is difference between clone and offspring?

A clone is genetically identical to the parent. Offspring are 'children' that contain a mix of the father and the mothers DNA and so will be genetically different to both of their parents. Offspring from an asexually reproducing organism (i.e bacteria or rotifers) are sometimes referred to as clones as they contain identical DNA to the parent.


What type of asexual reproduction involves an organism starting to grow out of the parent organism and that may or may not remain attached to the parent organism?

Fragmentation is a type of asexual reproduction that involves an organism starting to grow out of the parent organism that may or may not remain attached to the parent organism.


How many individuals does asexual reproduction require?

During asexual reproduction there is only need for one participant. Asexual reproduction is a form of reproducing in which offspring are created simply from one organism and they inherit genes of the singular parent only.
