- There are several methods of asexual reproduction in animals.
- Example Binary Fission, Budding,Fragmentaion, Regeneration etc.
Binary Fission in amoeba
- This method is very common in in organisms like amoeba and paramecium
- The organism starts the process by divison of its body into two. each part with a nucleus.
- Finally the daughter amoebae are produced from one parent Amoeba.
- The daughter amoeba can grow into full size.
The Process in which an individual reproduces by dividing into two individuals is called binary fission.
Budding in hydra
- Budding is commonly seen in hydra.
- In this animal one or more small builb like projections outgrowth from the body.
- These are called buds.
- These buds are responsible for giving rise to new individuals
- The parent hydra divides into two.
- Then one of the two nuclei passes into the bud.
- The bud detaches itself from the parent body and it grows into a new individual.
- This method of asexual reproduction is called budding.
