How does the progeny formed from asexual reproduction differ from those formed by sexual reproduction?

Answer

 

Progeny formed from asexual reproduction

Progeny formed from sexual reproduction

1.

Asexual reproduction does not involve the fusion of the male and the female gamete. Organisms undergoing this kind of reproduction produce offspring’s that are morphologically and genetically identical to them.



Sexual reproduction involves the fusion of the male and the female gamete of two individuals, typically one of each sex. Organisms undergoing this kind of reproduction produce offspring’s that are not identical to them.

2.

Offsprings thus produced do not show variations and are called clones.

Offspring’s thus produced show variations from each other and their parents.
