HideShow resource information
What is a clone?
In asexual reproduction there is no joining of gametes and only one parent. There is no genetic variety in the offspring.
1 of 6
Why does asexual reproduction result in offspring that are identical to their parents?
The genetically identical offspring of asexual reproduction are known as clones.
2 of 6
How does sexual reproduction produce variety?
In sexual reproduction male and female gametes join. The mixture of genetic information from two parents leads to genetic variety in offspring.
