WRITE ADVANTGES OF VEGETATIVE REPRODUCTION
Asked by sonaisha | 5th Feb, 2009, 12:41: PM
Advantages of vegetative / asexual reproduction:
Asexual reproduction is faster and easier than sexual reproduction, because another partner is not needed, and doesn't have to be found.
Another advantage of asexual reproduction, is that the animal or pollen grains doesn't have to travel in order to propagate the species, which means it can conserve energy and be more discreet.
Asexual reproduction doesn't allow any type of genetic variation, this is an advantage, because any mutations or "bad" qualities will be passed on, and cannot leave the life chain of that species.
Asexual reproduction is more reliable than sexual, because there are less steps to follow and therefore less can go wrong. For instance pollen transfer is very flimsy and since asexual reproduction doesn't need this, it is more reliable.
