Question

( 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. 


Solution

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.
