Regeneration Leading To Asexual Reproduction

Regeneration is described as the replacement of the lost parts of the body of an organism. This capacity is present in approximately all organisms but in many cases, particularly in higher vertebrates and some non-chordates, this capacity is limited only to replacement of cells, but not to organs or main parts of organs. But regenerative capacity in many non- chordates, particularly the lower forms, is tremendous ad can lead to the formation of a completely new individual from any broken bit or the fraction of the parent's body, and in this way it almost becomes yet another method of asexual reproduction. Regeneration as a process leading to asexual reproduction can take place in two situations:

 1. Animals natural fragmenting (spontaneous separation) followed through regeneration of the missing parts in each fragment.

 2. Animals accidentally cut or broken into pieces by injury followed by regeneration in each bit to generate as many complete individuals.
