The process by which an organism makes a baby without a mommy and daddy...IT'S LIKE IT COMES OUT OF THEIR FRIGGIN HEAD!!! (because it usually actually
does) and then a child is born...usually without a spine
-OH GOD! JOHNNY JUST SPROUTED A BABY FROM HIS HEAD!!!!!
-He reproduced asexually!
often confused with autosexual reproduction
in asexual reproduction only one organism, which is neither male nor feamale, is involved. the organism reproduces either by
1. fission, litterally spliting itself in half to create two organisms. (imagine having yourself ripped in half, and then each half growing back the half it is missing)
2. budding, where the new organism starts of as a growth on the side of the original organism. (like having a little man grow out of you're ass cheek, a little man that is exactly like you)
Yeast cells use asexual reproduction. (specifically the second form, budding)
Single celled organisms often use asexual reproduction (fission).
