Reproduction is the biological process by which new individual

organisms are produced. it is the process by which living organisms

produce copies of themselvesReproduction is a fundamental feature

of all known life; each individual organism exists as the result of

reproduction. The known methods of reproduction are broadly grouped

into two main types: sexual and asexual.

In asexual reproduction, an individual can reproduce without

involvement with another individual of that species. The division

of a bacterial cell into two daughter cells is an example of

asexual reproduction. Asexual reproduction is not, however, limited

to single-celled organisms. Most plants have the ability to

reproduce asexually. In sexual reproduction two individuals a male

and a female are required .
