16 Questions

Which type of reproduction does not involve the fusion of gametes or change in the number of chromosomes?

Asexual reproduction

In which type of asexual reproduction does the parent organism divide in two to produce two genetically identical daughter organisms?

Binary fission

What is the primary form of reproduction for single-celled organisms such as archaea and bacteria?

Asexual reproduction

Which type of organisms can reproduce asexually, including plants, animals, and fungi?

Eukaryotic organisms

What is a common form of asexual reproduction used by vertebrates when reproductive opportunities are limited?

Parthenogenesis

Which mechanism for lateral gene transfer can be likened to sexual reproduction in the sense of genetic recombination in meiosis?

Conjugation

Which process involves the formation of miniaturized plants called plantlets on specialized leaves?

Vegetative propagation

In which process does the nucleus of the parent cell divide several times by mitosis, producing several nuclei?

Multiple fission

Which type of reproduction involves the production of merozoites, sporozoites, and microgametes?

Multiple fission

Which process involves some cells dividing by budding, resulting in a 'mother' and a 'daughter' cell?

Budding

In which type of reproduction do plants form bulbs or tubers?

Vegetative propagation

Which process involves the production of haploid spores rather than gametes?

Spore formation

What is the process favored by parasites such as Toxoplasma gondii, which involves an unusual process in which daughter cells are produced inside a mother cell, which is then consumed by the offspring prior to their separation?

Budding

'Endodyogeny' and 'endopolygeny' are associated with which process?

Budding

What type of reproduction does baker's yeast undergo?

Budding

What type of reproduction involves the production of cysts and then the production of protoscolex with budding?

Budding

Test your knowledge on asexual reproduction, where offspring inherit the full set of genes from a single parent, resulting in genetic similarity or clones. Explore the primary form of reproduction for single-celled organisms and more.
