'Fusco’s and Minelli’s The Biology of Reproduction is impressive in scope. Rather than adopting a more restricted perspective on reproduction - be it on reproduction in mammals, animals, or plants - this book provides a comprehensive overview of the various similarities and variations of this central biological phenomenon across the whole tree of life. Reproduction refers to the production of offspring by organized bodies. The offspring is produced as a new individual organism from the parent (s). It is one of the fundamental attributes of a living thing. Reproduction is a demonstration of the ability of an organism to produce a new organism referred to as an offspring. NCERT Book for Class 12 Biology Chapter 1 Reproduction in Organisms is available for reading or download on this page. Students who are in class 12th or preparing for any exam which is based on Class 12 Biology can refer NCERT Biology Book for their preparation. Vegetative reproduction is the main mode of plant reproduction. Roots such as corm, stem tuber, rhizomes and stolon undergo vegetative propagation. Sexual reproduction in plants takes place through pollination in which the pollen grains from the anther of a male flower transfer to the stigma of the female flower.

Human Reproductive Biology. This note is designed to give the student a clear understanding of the pathophysiology of the menstrual cycle, fertilization, implantation, ovum growth development, differentiation and associated abnormalities. Sexual Biology and Reproduction in Crustaceans covers crustacean reproduction as it deals with the structural morphology of the gamete-producing primary sex organs, such as the testis and ovary, the formation and maturation of gametes, their fusion during fertilization, and embryonic development that lead to the release of larvae. Constituting. Reproduction, process by which organisms replicate themselves.. In a general sense reproduction is one of the most important concepts in biology: it means making a copy, a likeness, and thereby providing for the continued existence of gh reproduction is often considered solely in terms of the production of offspring in animals and plants, the more general meaning has far .   NCERT Books For Class 12 Biology Free PDF Download DOWNLOAD Biology NCERT Book Standard XII Free PDF.

Sexual reproduction was an early evolutionary innovation after the appearance of eukaryotic cells. It appears to have been very successful because most eukaryotes are able to reproduce sexually, and in many animals, it is the only mode of reproduction. And yet, scientists recognize some real disadvantages to sexual reproduction.   The control of reproduction in females is more complex. The female reproductive cycle is divided into the ovarian cycle and the menstrual cycle. The ovarian cycle governs the preparation of endocrine tissues and release of eggs, while the menstrual cycle governs the preparation and maintenance of the uterine lining (Figure ).
