Characteristics of Sexual Reproduction

Requires a female and male parent

Each parent donates ½ of the Chromosomes/Genes/DNA

Requires fertilization - the combining of gametes

Produces genetic diversity - variation among and within species that is attributable to differences in hereditary material. www.for.gov.bc.ca/hfd/library/documents/glossary/G.htm
