In sexual reproduction, there is mixing of male and female genes, giving rise to variations. Hence new combinations of charachters appear in offsprings
It increases diversity giving rise to a greater variation among individuals and in the population.
Evolution is made possible with sexual reproduction
New species are formed through sexual reproduction
In case of changing conditions, sexually reproducing organisms have greater diversity, enabling them to have greater survival chances.
In many cases, sexual reproduction usually results in the formation of a life stage that is able to endure the conditions that threaten the offspring of an asexual parent
