Advantages of Sexual Reproduction
• It produces variation in the offspring.
• The species can adapt to new environments due to variation, which gives them a survival advantage.
• Humans can speed up natural selection through selective breeding, which can be used, for example, to increase food production.
Examples of Sexual Reproduction
Disadvantages of Sexual Reproduction
• Time and energy are needed to find a mate.
• It is not possible for an isolated individual.
Advantages of Asexual Reproduction
• The population can increase rapidly when the conditions are favourable.
• It is more time and energy efficient as you dont need a mate.
• It is faster than sexual reproduction.
Disadvantages of Asexual Reproduction
• It does not lead to variation in a population.
• The species may only be suited to one habitat.
• Disease may affect all the individuals in a population.
