How does Reproduction Help in Providing Stability?

Reproduction is the biological process by which new individuals of the same species are produced from the parents.  It helps in providing stability in the ecosystem by producing new individuals, thereby, balancing the one’s that are perished. This maintains a balance between the birth rate and death rate. It replaces the older population with the new population and thus maintains a balance, thereby, ensuring the survival of the species.

Reproduction helps in creating variations among genome and populations. It thus maintains a balance in the universe. It is the only means to enhance the continuity of species. Different populations occupy well-defined places in their ecosystem with their ability to reproduce. DNA replication is responsible for the variations among organisms that allow an organism to survive in a particular niche. Genetic variations are also the result of gene mutations and gene flow.
