At this point the only animals that are being cloned are mammals. Birds have a more complex system than mammals. Because science is progressing by leaps and bounds, perhaps in the near future birds can be successfully cloned.
Depending on how you make them. I have a theory humans can not be fabricated, we are special, and even if we do make a clone, it won't be like us, because it won't have soul. So, I don't think that clones, if possible to make more children that are human with sex. The children, I think, may have birth defects, and I do't think that's worth it, but that's what i think.
Yes i think cloning is asexual in the sense that an entire organism is produced from a single cell and the offspring produced also know as the clone is identical in every sense eg Genes. an example of a clone is a form OS asexual reproduction in lower organisms like Bacteria, vegetative propagation in plants etc.
Cloning may be a quick fix to increase the number of individuals. However, numbers are not everything. What is more important to small population sizes is genetic diversity, in other words the amount of genetic variation that exists within a population. Populations with significant reduction in genetic diversity will have a drastically increased likelihood of producing offspring with a recessive genetic disorder (the same reason why inbreeding in humans will likely result in some problem with the child). Besides this, genetic diversity allows populations to adapt in the event of a strong environmental change (e.g. climate change). In other words, if the environment changes, diversity makes it likely at least some of the individuals are adapted to survive.
one of the ethical reason about cloning a plant is that it is not natural
You can clone them if you have the DNA and a suitable host mother a close match to the original species. It would be exciting to see a live mammoth...
The biggest advantage to bringing animals back would be to fill niches in the ecosystem that they once inhabited. There are many ecosystems around the world where extinct animals have left holes in the ecosystem which mean that it ceases to function properly. One such instance in the eradication of the large predators in the UK.
Many of these holes could be filled by reintroducing animals from otehr parts of their range where they still exist.
Animals such as the mammoth (more possible as they tended to die in extremely cold places so often some genetic material is left in the body) could be reintroduced into Siberia to fulfill the niche that they evolved to fill
No - pollination requires the presence of both pollen (male contribution from anthers) and ovules (female contribution from the pistil). Imperfect flowers have flowers with either male organs or female organs, not both. As a result, they require cross-pollination to produce seeds.
people say cloning animals the animals could all be killed by the same diseases because they are all the same.
if they are being used for food people say its not not the nutrients of real meat.
for some people they seen it as against nature and god.
You can hunt more often a still have lots of animals and can stop existent animals.
Cloning animals is a difficult process but many animals have been cloned. The most infamous one was Dolly the sheep and she was cloned in 1997. Although there has seemed to be a lower life expectancy in animals that have been cloned due to cancer.
The first thing to be cloned was a animal. It was created by Hans Dreisch in the late 1800's. He cloned a goat. Dreich's original goal was not to create identical animals, but to prove that genetic material is not lost during cell division. In 1902, another scientist, embryologist Hans Spemman, used a hair from his infant son as a knife to separate a 2-celled embryo of a salamander, which also grow externally. He later separated a single cell from a 16-celled embryo.

The disscussions of cloning are still very vague. It is well known that the cloning of human beings is illegal, due to religious problems. On the other hand the cloning of plants and animals is legal.
Well, recently cloning has been attempted only for copying specific organs, not necessarily whole human beings. This is important because the cloning of specific organs can completely obliterate the need to transplant organs and would guarantee 100% compatibility. This has been considered immoral on some counterparts because the stem cells needed to follow through with cloning require stem cells.
