Reproduction is the ability to produce new organism of its own type. It is meant to increase their number.

Reproduction includes -

(i) Replication of DNA                                          

(ii) Cell division

(iii) Formation of reproduction units                      

(iv) Division into offsprings.

Animals reproduce mainly in two ways -
