Asexual reproduction is reproduction which doesn't involve meiosis, ploidy reduction, or fertilization. Only one parent is involved in asexual reproduction.Asexual reproduction is the primary form of reproduction for single-celled organisms such as the archaea, bacteria, and protists. Many plants and fungi reproduce asexually as well.
Agamogenesis is any form of reproduction that does not involve a male gamete. Examples are parthenogenesis and apomixis.
