Among the following organisms can we see asexual reproduction. Write about the method of asexual reproduction in any of the two organisms,
a) Paramoecium b) Yeast c) Spirogyra d) Amoeba e) Planaria
Yes, we can see asexual reproduction in all the following organisms.
Method of asexual reproduction - Organism
Binary fission - Paramoecium, amoeba
Budding - Yeast
Fragmentation - Spirogyra
Regeneration - Planaria
1) Binary fission in Paramoecium: A single cell divides into two equal daughter cells. First the cytoplasm divides into two parts followed by nuclear division.
2) Asexual reproduction in Yeast : Budding is the common method of asexual reproduction in yeast. In this method, yeast cell wall at a particular region becomes soft and bulges into an outgrowth called bud. Cytoplasm enters into this bulge and then nucleus divides mitotically into two nuclei, one moves into the bud. Finally bud is detached from the parent cell and grows into an independent yeast cell.
