Asexual reproduction in plants

View mindmap
  • A sexual reproduction in plants.
    • some plants eg. strawberry plants send out runners (fast growing stems) that grow out sideways, just above the ground.
      • The runners take root at various points and new plants start to grow.
        • The new plants are clones of the parent strawberry plant. so theres no genetic variation between them.
    • We can also clone plants using artificial methods.
      • Gardener can take cuttings from good parent plants, and then plant them to produce genetically identical copies of the parent plant.
        • These are produced quickly and cheaply.
