Asexual Reproduction

  • Asexual reproduction involves the production of offspring that are genetically identical to the parent.

  • Plants reproduce asexually using vegetative propagation, where new plants grow from bulbs, tubers, or other parts of the parent plant.
  • The main difference between asexual and sexual reproduction is that asexual reproduction does not involve genetic recombination or the mixing of genetic information from two parents.
