multiple fission

Multiple fission is an asexual method of reproduction in organisms like sporozoans, algae, plasmodium, etc. In multiple fission, the parent organism splits (or divides) to form many new organisms at the same time. The term ‘multiple’ means ‘many’ or ‘several’. So, multiple fission means ‘splitting into many’ or ‘splitting into several’. This happens as follows …

binary fission

Binary fission is an asexual method of reproduction of organisms or many animals. In binary fission, the parent organism splits (or divides) to form two new organisms. When this happens, the parent organism ceases to exist and two new organisms come into existence. The unicellular organisms like Amoeba, Paramecium, Leishmania, bacteria, etc, reproduce by binary …

fragmentation

   Some of the multicellular organisms having relatively simple body organisation can break up easily into smaller pieces (or fragments) on maturing. These pieces or fragments can then grow and form new organisms complete in all respects. This is another method of reproduction called ‘fragmentation’ which can be define as follows: The breaking up of …

regeneration

     In some organisms (plants as well as animals) small cut parts of anywhere in their body can grow (or regenerate) to form whole new organisms same as her parent complete in all respects. The process of getting back a full organism from a small cut part of its body is called regeneration. The simple …

spore formation

       Spore formation is an asexual method of reproduction. The reproduction by spore formation takes place in plants not in animals. In spore formation, the parent plant produces hundreds of microscopic reproductive units called ‘spores’ which are very small in size. When the spore case of the plant bursts, then the spores spread into air …

budding

Budding is an asexual method of reproduction. In budding, a small part and single of the body of the parent organism grows out as a ‘bud’. Before we discuss the method of budding, we should know the meaning of the term ‘bud’. The ‘bud’ here means a ‘small outgrowth’ from the body of the living …

fission

    Many single-celled organisms like protozoa or bacteria just split (or break) into two identical halves during cell division, lending to the creation of new organisms. This is called fission. In biology, fission is the process of reproduction in unicellular organisms such as protozoa (like Amoeba, Paramecium, Leishmania, etc.) and many bacteria. In the process …
