Definitions:

CLONE :- Offspring from single parent, Morphology and genetically similar individuals.

CYST :- Hard covering around the organism protecting from anti environment.

DIOECIOUS :- It is the condition in which either male or female reproductive organs are found in the same body of an organism.

EMBRYOGENESIS :- It is the process of development of embryo from the zygote..

FERTILIZATION :- The union of two opposite types of gametes, spermatozoa and ova to produce single diploid zygote.

FISSION :- Division of nucleus with cytoplasm.

FRAGMENTATION :- Division of breaking into distinct pieces each of which can produce an offspring.

GEMMULE :- The parent individual releases a specialized mass of cells enclosed in a common opaque envelope called the gemmule.

HERMAPHRODITE :- Organisms which have both male and female reproductive organs in the same individual.

HOMOGAMETES :- When the two gametes of male and female are so similar in appearance that it is not possible to categorize them into male and female gametes.

JUVENILE PHASE :-Juvenile Phase represents the period of an organism from birth upto reaching reproductive maturity.

LIFE SPAN :-The period from birth to the natural birth of an organism.

MEIOCYTE ;- The cell which undergoes meiosis is called a meiocyte .

MONOECIOUS :- It is the condition in which male and female reproductive organs are found in the same body of an organism.

PARTHENOGENESIS :-The female gamete undergoes development to form new organisms without fertilization.

REPRODUCTION :-Biological process in which an organism gives rise to young ones of its own kind.

SYNGAMY :- Syngamy refers to the fusion of two (male and female) gametes.

VEGETATIVE PROPAGATION :-It is the process of formation or regeneration of new plants from a portion of a vegetative part of the plant .
