• Offsprings are genetically similar to their parents.
• Reproduction is necessary for the existence and continuity of species in universe.
Reproduction is of two types : (i) Asexual Reproduction (ii) Sexual Reproduction

ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION
• Production of offsprings by a single parent without the formation and fusion of gametes is called asexual reproduction.
• It is a primitive type of reproduction.
• In this type of reproduction offspring is produced by a cell or any vegetative organ of an organism.
• In this type of reproduction offsprings are genetically identical to their parents.

SEXUAL REPRODUCTION
Reproduction resulting from the fusion of male and female gametes is called sexual reproduction.

(ii) Each parent produces gametes.
(iii) Male gametes are called sperms while female gametes are called ova or eggs.
(iv) The fusion of male and female gametes is called fertilization. It results in to the formation of a single diploid cell zygote.
(v) The zygote undergoes repeated mitotic divisions to form embryo which differentiate to form full organism.
(vi) The organisms produced in this type of reproduction are genetically different from both the parents and can resemble in certain features with parents
