The mode of reproduction in which the offsprings are produced by single parent is called asexual reproduction. The offsprings are the exact photocopies of their parent.
The different modes of reproduction are:
- Fission: A parent cell divides into two or more cells. Example: Amoeba
- Fragmentation: The parent’s body dic=vides into fragments and the fragment grows into a new organism. Example: spirogyra
- Regeneration: If a part of the body is lost then it can grow again into a new one. Example a lizard’s tail
- Budding: The buds formed on the individual grow into a new organism then detaches from the parent organism. Example: Hydra
- Vegetative propagation: Plants reproduce asexually through their vegetative parts such as leaves, roots, stem, and buds.
- Spore formation: Organisms which belong to the fungi group produce spores within a sac-like structure called sporangium
