Sexual And Asexual ReproductionStreaming Video - 2013
All forms of life, from the simple to the highly complex, possess not only the ability but the instinct to reproduce. This program gives an introduction to the basic biological concepts involved with sexual and asexual reproduction. Starting at the cellular level, the video distinguishes between reproduction that occurs sexually, in an exchange of genetic material between two organisms, and asexually, in which organisms produce offspring with a genetic makeup identical to the parent. Several plant and animal examples are included, as are clear explanations of meiosis and mitosis. The various evolutionary benefits and disadvantages of both types of reproduction are also examined.
