What is a sexual and asexual reproduction?
"Asexual" reproduction is when the genetically identical offspring is produced by 1 parent, "sexual" reproduction is when 2 parents are involved in order to create genetically unique offspring.
Example 1: A dandelion has asexual reproduction, cows and bulls have sexual reproduction. Example 2: Somatic cells use asexual reproduction, humans/gametes use sexual reproduction

sexual : in sexual reproduction, cells from two different parents unite to form the first cell of the new organism. asexual : in asexual reproduction, a single parent produces offspring that are identical to itself.
Briefly, asexual reproduction allows an organism to quickly reproduce, without wasting energy on courting a mate, and enables reproduction even if that organism can't find another of it's species at the time. Sexual reproduction allows for genetic variation in the offspring, as the combination of ge…netic material from the two parents creates new genetic combinations which may have survival advantages. Sexual reproduction is what enabled the existence of the wide diversity of forms of live that exist in our world. Without sexual reproduction, there would have been insufficient variation to enable natural selection to work. ( Full Answer )
Sexual reproduction is reproducing with a sperm and egg, so it needs to parents. Asexual reproduction is reproducing with just one parent.
Sexual reproduction . Two parents usually needed . Gametes have to join together (male gamete (e.g. sperm) and female gamete (eggs) . the new organisms formed have traits from the parents Asexual reproduction . only one parent is needed . there is no joining together of gametes . the new…ly formed organisms are identical to the parent ( Full Answer )
Asexual organisms can produce offspring on their own,a plants arm falling off and the arm turns into a plant is a example of this.Sexual organisms need a partner to produce offspring,humans are a example of sexual reproducers.
sexual is when you need to individuals to reproduce and asexual iswhen an organism can reproduce it selft Sexual is where you need two gender types e.g. Humans whileasexually is where a organism can create life without two gendertypes or with out fertisilation (it does it by its self) e.g.onions Ho…pe that helps ;) ( Full Answer )
Both involve at least one parent Both produce offspring Offspring are of the same species Offspring are able to reproduce themselves
differences: 1) sexual reproduction involves two parent to produce one or more new organisms while asexual reproduction involves one parent to produce one or more new organisms. 2) in sexual reproduction off-springs are not identical to their parents while in asexual reproduction off-springs are ide…ntical to their parent and identical to each other.

1.They both can duplicate into two or more offspring. 2.Both can produce offspring (obviously) 3.The offspring is the same species as the "parent" 4.Invovle at least 1 "parent" 5.The offspring are also able to reproduce.
sexual reproduction doesn't yield as many offspring. asexual makes exact replicas, so if one is mutated all its offspring will be too. asexual takes longer for the organism to evolve unless there are helpful mutations.
Sexual reproduction requires male and female partners to make offspring. Half of the parents genes will be transported to the offspring(baby). Asexual offspring does not require partners to make offspring. Since only one person made the offspring all of the parents genes will go to the offspring and… its new generation. ( Full Answer )
disadvantages of sexual reproduction: - need 2 parents (if one species dies out; can't produce anything) - can spread disease - not quick - may be mutations advantages of asexual reproduction: disadvantages of asexual reproduction: - exact copy - no diversity - if a disease is genetica…lly transmitted, every generation will get that disease and soon become extinct hope this helped !

Basically, sexual reproduction allows for variety of the offspring because it is receiving genes from both parents, allowing a greater chance off survival during a disaster to that species. Asexual allows reproductions to occur much faster, therefore allowing that organisms species to out compete… it competitors. ( Full Answer )
i think sexual reproduction is better because it provides the baby with more characteristics to life and how to live it sexully/ asexul reproduction just is plan strange
They are both means of reproduction, used to form offspring(s). They also both require the transfer of DNA.
Sexual reproduction is when two parents put cells into their young. Asexual reproduction is when a organism is formed with only one parent.
This isn't even a question.... But Asexual reproduction does not require two beings of the same specials to produce offspring, while sexual reproduction does. Wikipedia's definition certainly needs some fine tuning. If any one has a better answer, please correct me, and go add a section to wiki. Th…e only example that I could think of, would be defined as having NO sex organs. My favorite is called Budding. Bacteria can do this, i believe. Cells and such as well. Pretty much the cell duplicates itself, and spits out the duplication and Vuala, now there are two. ( Full Answer )
I will refer to asexual reproduction as A and sexual reproduction as S *A involves one parent. S involves 2 parents. *A has same genetic material. S has varied genetic material. *The offspring or cells in A produce identical clones. Offspring in S are different (due to variation) * Division… in A is very fast. Division in S takes time. * Mitosis is involved in A. As for S, meiosis is required in sex organs to form sex cells (gametes) ( Full Answer )
ASEXUAL reproduction, ( used by bacteria, etc), is able to be used immediately, if conditions are suitable for reproduction, without energy used to find, court, &/or fight for a mate or raise offspring. Advantage AND disadvantage is the the gene pool is very compressed and genetic changes, variants …of the species, only come about with damage or a mutant reproduction. It gives a stability to type, which again, has both advatages and disadvantages but usually restricts it's ideal conditions. Yet if a mutant gene proves more successful, it can be reproduced immediately, as long as conditions favour breeding Asexual reproduction also means there will be no sexually spread diseases, to infect species. SEXUAL reproduction costs a great deal of energy, to find, court, &/or fight for a mate and sometimes raise young and if there is no mate available, no reproduction and, large scale, to species collapse - but it gives a far greater range of possible variants to enable relatively fast adaptions to changing conditions and to exist in a wider range of conditions in successful variants. It also gives a greater degree of effects from random couplings and the variants of recessive genes. So, as a species, there are lots of versions popping up which have all the opportunity of being tried out, as a more succesful version for survival. Sexual reproduction in a relatively suddenly restricted area, where inbreeding occurs, loses a lot of the advantages it has and as often a wide selection of mutant recessive genes, (more than usually disadvantageous), begin doubling up, the inbreeding can be catastrophic for the species.

Mitosis is asexual reproduction. Individual cells do not have sexual organs. Because of this, mitosis reproduces with identical cells.
asexual lays eggs, sexual (like humans) carrys the baby around in the whomb until birth
In asexual production only one organism is needed to produce offspring and in sexual reproduction, two organisms are needed to produce offspring. If you want more information, go to this website: http://biology.about.com/od/genetics/a/aa031105a.htm

Advantages of Sexual Reproduction . The new organisms or off-springs are not identical to each other nor to their parents. This variation allows for differential survival in different situations. If all organisms of a species is genetically the same, then they all survive or die together. Howeve…r, with variation, unfavorable conditions may allow one organism in a species to be more fit than another organism of the same species. . Seeds that are produced may be resistant to poor conditions e.g. drought. hence they can survive . New plants may arise which for example have bigger seeds and so produce more food . New kinds of animals might arise which again might produce better meat or more milk Advantages of Asexual Reproduction . Produces large numbers of offspring . Offspring are identical to the parent and to each other (so a farmer can produce more 'copies' of a good plant. . New organisms are produced quicker than in sexual reproduction . It is essential in plants such as banana where seeds are not produced ( Full Answer )
Sexual reproduction is reproduction involving the union or fusion of a male and a female gamete. These gametes must come from two organisms, a male and a female. Asexual reproduction is reproduction through cloning or budding. Humans reproduce sexually.
asexual reproduction involves only one organism ex:ferns and mosses sexual reproduction reqiures to organisms, male and female ex: humans
\nAsexual reproduction is carried out by primitive organisms and cells which is simply the division of in cell into two.\nin higher organisms it takes place by budding, in which the animal has an outgrowth which then brakes of into a new organism. Plants like ferns also reproduce by asexual reproduc…tion. The offspring is an exact replica of the parent.\nSexual reproduction takes place in higher animals and involves 2 inviduals(1 male & 1 female) to contribute half the genetic material each by using gametes(sperms & eggs in humans) to make 1 cell which grows into a individual. Sexual intercourse is the usual method of transport of gametes. ( Full Answer )
Roundworms reproduces sexually ... . .. the female has an ovary, holds eggs in the oviduct that then move to the uterus, where they are fertilized as normal. The male has sperm cells are made conventionaly in the testis as in other spieces that reproduce sexualy.
\nClams have sexual reproduction. A male clam releases his sperm into the water at the same time that a female clam releases her eggs into the water. Somehow the male and female clams know how to do it at the same time and somehow the sperm and the eggs get together.
I've been studying meiosis and mitosis a lot in class, and if theres one thing I've learned from all this jibber jabber, it's that meiosis occurs in sexual reproduction, and mitoses ioccurs in asexual reproduction. Another difference would be the fact that during meiosis, the cell divides 2 times… and ends up as 4 new cells.... During mitosis, the cell will only divide once and it will end up in 2 new cells ( Full Answer )
Firstly, sexual reproduction requires the fusion of male and female gametes, in a process known as fertilisation, while on the other hand, asexual reproduction does not require the fusion of gametes.. Secondly, sexual reproduction results in the offspring of the parents to have traits of both paren…ts, due to the random fusion of gametes. While asexual reproduction results in the daughter organism being genetically similar to the mother. ( Full Answer )

Asexual Reproduction Asexual reproduction is a type of reproduction in which an individual organism produces an offspring that is genetically identical to itself through a process called mitosis. Sexual Reproduction Sexual reproduction is a type of reproduction in which two individual organisms p…roduce offspring that exhibit a combination of the genetics of both parents. The process in which the offspring are produced is called meiosis. ( Full Answer )
asexual reproduction is when there is only one parent in the picture. it means that you do not need another one of those species to complete the process. sexual reproduction is where there are two parents (human reproduction is an example of this)
Since a cell is not considered a living thing, meiosis is neither asexual or sexual reproduction.
Sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction both result in offspring. Sexual reproduction involves two parents, while asexual reproduction involves one parent (usually a cell) splitting and creating a duplicate of itself.
It's sexual, all of the offspring of the colony come from one queen and the drones.
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 a…sexual 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". ( Full Answer )
Asexual reproduction only involves mitosis, or binary fission. This leads to clones with identical genotypes. This also results in low genetic variation within a species. Sexual reproduction uses meiosis, indeed, sexual reproduction is the only function of meiosis. In meiosis, the first step… causing variation is called Crossing-Over, where portions of the paternal chromosomes and maternal chromosomes physically change places. Next, the cell divides, each daughter cell taking half the chromosomes. These haploid cells now have half the normal chromosome number (23 for humans), but the chromosomes are still in the commonly seen cross shape with two sister chromatids. These now divide again, the chromosome number is still 23, but they are now in their single-strip form. The result is four daughter cells with half the chromosomes of the original cell, and lots of variation. Add to this the randomness if which human mates with which, and which sperm combines with which egg, and one can see how we've been able to keep up, evolutionarily, with bacteria. ( Full Answer )
Sexual reproduction requires two organisms (parents) to contribute their DNA to produce offspring. Asexual reproduction only requires one parent.
Sexual reproduction is when you need two beings to reproduce. for example: Humans need the sperm and the egg to create a baby. Asexual reproduction is when the being has both sex cells within it's body it does not need a partner to create an offspring. for example: amoebas.
Most often in Arthropods, reproduction is by regular sexual reproduction i.e. by union of a sperm and egg. But variations of the usual process do occur. Aphids (class Insecta), for example, commonly reproduce by parthenogenesis, egg development without fertilization , and produce only females. But l…ater in the summer, some of them convert to being males and then sexual reproduction occurs. Male honey bees are produced by an unfertilized egg. Both of the examples may still be called sexual reproduction since they involve development of the female gamete, that is, the egg. True asexual reproduction would not involve either gamete (sperm or egg) and all of the off spring would be genetically equal. ( Full Answer )
Asexual is an example of fungi because they do not need another organism to reproduce. Animals use sexual reproduction because there needs to be a male and a female.
Sexual reproduction is with two parents and takes one sperm and one egg cell to create one embryo. The two parents and the offspring have different genetic information. Asexual reproduction is with one parent and both the parent and the offspring have the same genetic information, duh.
Penguins only have one sex and that is male. Males reproduce with each other so they have sexual reproduction. Dakota says: Seems legit ^
it is asexual because it only acquires 1 organism and the offspringis exactly like the parent that was cloned
While sexual reproduction provides variety in the offspring and natural selection, asexual reproduction will produce clones with all the genetic faults that the parent has in the offspring (this is not the case if the offspring are mutated). There are some drawbacks to sexual reproduction though. Fo…r example, sexual reproduction requires two animals or plants while asexual reproduction only requires one so it is far more efficient. Also, asexual reproduction requires less energy too. However, sexual reproduction is often considered superior because without it evolution wouldn't exist. ( Full Answer )
In this sense, sexual means there is a male and female gender. Asexual means there is no gender. If I recall correctly, sea slugs are asexual.
Asexual reproduction is basically the act of an organism making an exact copy of itself without the help of another organism, while sexual reproduction is the act of two organisms crossing their genetics to create offspring.
They reproduce asexually. The virus cell simply divides - creatingtwo exact copies from the single original.
