Biology: Asexual reproduction definition and its types, DNA role and suitable condition

Asexual reproduction is of six types

Budding:- Budding is a type of reproduction which takes in yeasts which is a single-celled organism. It sends out one or more tiny outgrowths which are known as buds. 

Fragmentation:- Fragmentation takes place in filamentous algae such as the spirogyra.

The algae are divided into two parts by the running water, then the new part develops into a new organism.

Spore Formation:- Spores are asexual reproductive organs found in plants such as ferns or moss. The spores can be released at any time and can be carried anywhere. Upon finding suitable conditions they may germinate.

Vegetative propagation:- Vegetative propagation takes place in advanced plants through their vegetative organs. The flower is not involved. Some plants like potato store food to survive through 

Binary Fission:- In Binary Fission the organism’s DNA is duplicated. it then divides in two(via cytokinesis) with each copy receiving one copy of the DNA. Amoeba reproduces by this process.

Regeneration:- In this process, a broken part of the organism(which broke accidentally) develops into a complete organism. Planaria reproduces by this process
