Can Multicellular organisms (Animals) Reproduce asexually ? Any example ?
Asked by | 16th Jan, 2014, 03:06: PM
Some multi-cellular organisms show inheritance of asexual reproduction but it is called parthenogenesis.
Parthenogenesis is a form of agamogenesis i.e. the reproduction that does not involve male gamete.
In parthenogenesis, an unfertilised egg develops into a new individual.
For example: Hammer headed shark, aphids, wasps, Honey bees (worker bees)
