A new plant develops from a stem or root of its parent plant. What is vegetative reproduction?
A new organism begins as a growth on the outside surface of the parent organism, and it eventually separates from the parent. What is budding?
A prokaryote divides and the offspring are identical to the parent. What is binary fission?
This type of reproduction requires two parents who each donate half their chromosomes to the offspring, thereby promoting genetic diversity among offspring. What is sexual reproduction?
The stages of the cell cycle in order. What are interphase, mitosis, and cytokinesis?
In this stage of the cell cycle, genetic material appears to be a disorganized, tangled ball of string. What is interphase?
