Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Sexual Reproduction"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. Sexual reproduction is a process specific to eukaryotes, organisms whose cells contain a nucleus and mitochondria. (Web site)
  2. Sexual reproduction is the union of male and female gametes to form a fertilized egg, or zygote. (Web site)
  3. Sexual reproduction is a union that results in increasing genetic diversity of the offspring.
  4. Sexual reproduction is the production of offspring from two parent using gametes. (Web site)
  5. Sexual reproduction is a process where organisms form offspring that combine genetic traits from both parents. (Web site)

Zygosporangia

  1. The name comes from zygosporangia, where resistant spherical spores are formed during sexual reproduction. (Web site)

Compatibility

  1. In fungi, sexual reproduction is determined by compatibility at the MAT locus. (Web site)

Mechanism

  1. This mechanism protects the organism from genetic abnormalities by "silencing" unmatched genes during meiosis (sexual reproduction). (Web site)

Divisions

  1. CLASSIFICATION OF FUNGI There are four major divisions of fungi, which are divided on the basis of their sexual reproduction. (Web site)

Union

  1. Sexual reproduction produces a new individual through the union of special sex cells (gametes), usually from different parents. (Web site)
  2. The union of these distinctive germ cells results in the production of a new individual in sexual reproduction. (Web site)
  3. Sexual reproduction involves the union of two organisms rather than the splitting of one. (Web site)

Group

  1. For some species in the group, sexual reproduction has been described. (Web site)

Clade

  1. Alternatively, sexual reproduction may allow for the "ratcheting" of evolutionary speed as one clade competes with another for a limited resource. (Web site)

Recombination

  1. The recombination is the bacterial equivalent of sexual reproduction in eukaryotes. (Web site)

Genome

  1. Sexual reproduction is believed to be more efficient than asexual reproduction in removing those mutations from the genome.

Results

  1. Sexual reproduction in the Basidiomycota produces a structure with the familiar mushroom shape and results in haploid spores called basidia.
  2. These results indicate that A. fumigatus has a recent evolutionary history of sexual recombination and might have the potential for sexual reproduction.
  3. These results suggest that pheromone signaling is important for optimal sexual reproduction of homothallic ascomycetes.

Definitive

  1. Definitive host For parasitic protozoa (and other parasites such as helminths) the definitive host is that in which sexual reproduction occurs. (Web site)

Stage

  1. Plasmogamy is a stage in the sexual reproduction of fungi. (Web site)
  2. In this cycle the mosquito is called the definitive host because it harbors the stage undergoing sexual reproduction.

Genetic Variation

  1. Sexual reproduction requires two parents and thus promotes genetic variation.

Variation

  1. Sexual reproduction can create a tremendous amount of variation within a species.
  2. Sexual reproduction allows more variation, but is more costly. (Web site)

Seeds

  1. The function of a flower is to produce seeds through sexual reproduction.
  2. The flower structure contains the plant's reproductive organs, and its function is to produce seeds through sexual reproduction. (Web site)

Bacterium

  1. Although not equivalent to sexual reproduction, the end result is that a bacterium contains a combination of traits from two different parental cells. (Web site)

Flagella

  1. Euglenozoa move by means of flagella and lack sexual reproduction. (Web site)

Biologists

  1. Some biologists think that only replicating half of your genes in exchange for sexual reproduction is not an even trade.

Advantages

  1. SUMMARY: The purpose of this lesson is to introduce students to key concepts regarding the advantages and disadvantages of sexual reproduction. (Web site)

Nucleus

  1. To achieve sexual reproduction it is necessary to have two mating type haploid nuclei (n + n), or a diploid (2n) nucleus. (Web site)

Sexually

  1. Since human beings reproduce sexually, most people are aware of how sexual reproduction takes place. (Web site)

Answer

  1. This answer provides the reason for sexual reproduction, and also interestingly enough, the reason for death. (Web site)

Fungus

  1. This appears to be because the fungus has largely dispensed with sexual reproduction, which means that its ability to adapt to new challenges is limited.
  2. In lichen reproduction, the fungus undergoes sexual reproduction and the alga undergoes asexual reproduction, each independently of its partner. (Web site)
  3. There is no sexual reproduction phase, but the fungus has a basidiomycetous affinity [ 462, 1295, 2202].

Fruiting Bodies

  1. In Saccharomycetales somatic cells convert to free asci during sexual reproduction and are not enclosed in ascomata (fruiting bodies). (Web site)

Mushrooms

  1. Mushrooms are produced as part of fungal sexual reproduction. (Web site)

Eggs

  1. In the definitive host, in which sexual reproduction occurs, eggs are commonly shed along with host feces. (Web site)

Cells

  1. In sexual reproduction, fusion of two cells produces a third cell that contains genetic information from each parental cell.
  2. Ascogonium(a): Female gametangium in fungi of the Ascomycota, which contains cells that are fertilized during sexual reproduction. (Web site)
  3. Sexual reproduction in heterothallic fungi is possible only between cells of opposite mating type. (Web site)

Nuclei

  1. During sexual reproduction, compatible nuclei unite within the mycelium and form sexual spores.
  2. Sexual reproduction is characterized by the union of two nuclei (Alexopoulos, 1952). (Web site)

Common

  1. Sexual reproduction, while common in nature, is a big paradox for biologists. (Web site)

Traits

  1. First, sexual reproduction can bring together mutations that are beneficial into the same individual (sex aids in the spread of advantageous traits). (Web site)
  2. Beneficial traits in the form of mutations can be spread more rapidly through sexual reproduction. (Web site)
  3. They can't grow these seeds themselves because the very act of sexual reproduction erases many of those carefully selected traits. (Web site)

Sex

  1. First, we analyzed genes involved in sexual reproduction because of the major role played by sex, or the loss of it, in a species' evolution. (Web site)
  2. In this sense, the term is a synonym for sex, a word that has undergone a usage shift itself, having become a synonym for sexual reproduction.
  3. In this article, we will explore the biology of sex -- otherwise known as human sexual reproduction. (Web site)

Sperm

  1. This renders sexual reproduction in the absence of water impossible, since water is a necessary medium for sperm and egg to meet. (Web site)
  2. Fungi dont make eggs and sperm, so how could they combine DNA for sexual reproduction. Feedback: a. (Web site)
  3. Sexual reproduction; the union of the sperm and egg in sexual reproduction; the joining of parental characters.

Yeasts

  1. Under low nutrient conditions, yeasts that are capapable of sexual reproduction will form ascospores.

Basidiomycetes

  1. Sexual reproduction in basidiomycetes is similar to that of the ascomycetes. (Web site)
  2. In contrast to their effective sexual reproduction, asexual reproduction is rare in most basidiomycetes.

Chromosomes

  1. In sexual reproduction, there is shuffling of chromosomes during meiosis and therefore the offspring is not genetically identical to the parent.
  2. During sexual reproduction there is a diploid phase (with two sets of chromosomes), which as a rule is very short.

Genetic Material

  1. These refer to complementary groups that combine genetic material in order to reproduce, a process called sexual reproduction.
  2. This is SEXUAL REPRODUCTION and it involves the exchange of genetic material between two parent plants.

Fruiting Body

  1. Sexual reproduction also occurs in yeast, and is differentiated from that of other fungi by sexual states that are not enclosed in a fruiting body. (Web site)

Sexual

  1. Sexual: Each of the four divisions of fungi have different forms of sexual reproduction.

Sexual Selection

  1. Agrawal AF: Sexual selection and the maintenance of sexual reproduction. (Web site)

Process

  1. In 1996, another group discovered that those alpha isolates could undergo fruiting and produce spores, a process that resembles sexual reproduction. (Web site)
  2. All mushrooms go through sexual reproduction and the part of the mushroom seen above ground is the structure used for this process.
