SEXUAL AND ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION
SEXUAL REPRODUCTION ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION
Genetic variation in offspring All offspring genetically identical
Meiosis Mitosis & binary fission
2 parents needed for fertilisation One organism needed
Offspring disperse to reduce competition Offspring do not disperse & this increases
competition
Small number of offspring No variation does not allow for adaptation &
resistance to disease or environmental change
Slow process No evolution or natural selection
Variation allows for adaptation & resistance to LARGE number of offspring & rapid process
disease or environmental change…read more
