6. Explain the following statement: �Reproduction is necessary for the survival of the species,but not for the survival of the individual.�
Reproduction is necessary for the survival of the species. If no members of a species reproduce, the species becomes extinct. However, reproduction is not necessary for the survival of an individual member of a species. For example, if no humans reproduced, the human species would become extinct. But, an individual person does not have to reproduce to survive.
