  1. Asexual Reproduction
    The formation of new individuals whose genes all come from one parent.
  2. Sexual Reproduction
    The formation of offspring by the fusion of haploid gametes.
  3. Egg/Ovum
    Female gamete which is usually large and nonmotile.
  4. Sperm
    Male gamete which is usually small and motile.
  5. What are three methods of asexual reproduction in invertebrates?
    Fission, budding, and fragmentation.
  6. Fission
    Asexual reproduction in whihc a parent separates into 2 or more approximately equal-sized individuals. An example is the sea anemone.
  7. Budding
    Asexual reproduction in which new individuals split off from existing ones. An example is the hydra.
  8. Fragmentation
    The breaking of the body into several pieces, some or all of which develop into complete adults. An example is a sea star.
  9. What does fragmentation require?
    The regeneration of lost body parts.

  10. What type of reproduction does this represent?

  11. What type of reproduction this represent?

  12. What type of reproduction does this represent?
  13. What are three advantages of asexual reproduction?
    Organisms can reproduce without needing to find a mate, can have numerous offspring in a short period of time, and, in stable environments, allows for the perpetuation of successful genotypes.
  14. Parthenogenesis
    The process by which an unfertilized egg develops into an (often) haploid adult.
  15. Parthenogenesis playes a role in the social organization of _________, _________, and _________.
    bees, wasps, and ants.
  16. Male honeybees are ____________.
    Female honeybees are ___________.
    haploid, diploid.
  17. Hermaphroditism
    One individual is functional as both a male and a female.
  18. Hermaphroditism results in what?
    Twice as many offspring because both individuals receive sperm and have eggs.
  19. What type of habitat is required for external fertilization?
    A moist habitat that will protect from desiccation and heat stress.
  20. Pheremones
    Chemical signals released by one organism that influence the behavior of other individuals of the same species.
  21. In internal fertilization, sperm are deposited in or near what?
    The female reproductive tract.
  22. What happens to the eggs of the giant water bug?
    They are glued onto the male's back after fertilization.
  23. What are the external reproductive structures for females?
    2 sets of labia surrounding the clitoris and vaginal opening.
  24. What are the internal reproductive organs of the female?
    A pair of gonads and a system of ducts and chambers.
