( a)Two scientists other than Linnaeus who contributed to the field of plant taxonomy?
(b) Amoeba multiplies by mitotic cell division .Is this growth or reproduction . Explain.
a)Aristotle and Theophrastus.
b) This phenomena is reproduction. An amoeba is a single-celled protist, which reproduces through a form of mitosis known as binary fission. The mother cell replicates its genetic material and divides equally into two daughter cells, which are both independent single celled organisms. This is a form of asexual reproduction, as gametes are not formed and the organisms which result are genetically identical to the mother cell.
