How do plants reproduce? The production of new individuals or offspring from their parents is known as reproduction. Plants reproduce either through sexual or asexual reproduction. In sexual reproduction, new plants are obtained from seeds while in asexual reproduction new plants are obtained without the production of seeds.
This module will help you understand better the different modes of reproduction in flowering and non-flowering plants.
The module is divided into two lessons, namely:
- Lesson 1: Sexual Reproduction in Plants (Self and Cross- Pollination).
- Lesson 2: Asexual Reproduction in Plants
At the end of this module, you will be able to:
- Differentiate Self-Pollination from Cross-Pollination
- Describe the different modes of reproduction in flowering and nonflowering plants such as moss, fern, mongo and others
