o Asexual reproduction
Asexual reproduction involves only one parent individual, be in plant or animal. Asexual reproduction has many advantages. It is safe, certain (there are no problems of finding a receptive mate) and can give rise to large numbers of offspring very rapidly. The offspring produ...
This essay will discuss the comparative benefits and costs of two forms of reproductions; parthenogenesis and sexual reproduction. To narrow the scope of the piece, the area of parthenogenesis is going to be largely limited to organisms that are obligately parthenogenetic. Parthenogenesis is the “...

Introduction to sexual reproduction in humans
Reproduction is the process by which humans gives rise to new individuals. Sexual reproduction is the process that involves the fusion of two gametes, sperm (male gamete) and egg (female gamete). In human these gametes are produced in different sexes, t...
Sexual reproduction has been successful among flowering plants and mammals, it is brought by the following requirements.
Firstly is the transfer of gametes. Sexual reproduction is only made successful when the gametes of the male and female from a pair of parents of different sexes are transferr...

Asexual reproduction is a mode of reproduction by which offspring arise from a single parent, and inherit the genes of that parent only; it is reproduction which does not involve meiosis, ploidy reduction, or fertilization. The offspring will be exact genetic copies of the pa...
Asexual vs. Sexual Reproduction Reinforcement (51 points)
1. Compare and contrast asexual reproduction and sexual reproduction. (2pts)

Q1. Why is reproduction necessary in living organisms?
If organisms don’t reproduce, then after their death, there would be no organisms left of their species. Thus their species would perish.
Q2. Differentiate between Sexual and Asexual reproduction.

In this experiment, we are trying to find the effect of ERα in kisspeptin neurons, so we are going to investigate situations where ERα is present or absent.
The model we use for this experiment is WT mice with ERα intact in kisspeptin neurons, and KERKO mice where ERα is knocked out in kisspept...
What is fertility?
* Natural capacity to give life
* Ability to produce offspring of the same species (reproduce)
* Refers to production of offspring by single organism w/o formation and fusion of gametes. while Sexual reproduction refe...
Clockwork Orange and the Age of Mechanical Reproduction
For Walter Benjamin, the defining characteristic of modernity was mass assembly and production of commodities, concomitant with this transformation of production is the destruction of tradition and the mode of experience which depends upon...
Cellular Reproduction is the process by which all living things produce new organisms similar or identical to themselves. This has to happen because if a species were not able to reproduce, that species would quickly become extinct. Reproduction consists of a basic pat...

Natural law and sexual ethics by Janet Smith
I am honored to be among the lecturers in this series on natural law. Many of the speakers are among my heroes and friends. One of my heroes, Alasdair MacIntyre, used one of his favorite terms in his talk: he spoke of "plain persons" and their gra...
