Summary

Animals and plants use ingenious ways to reproduce and ensure the survival of their species. One of these methods is asexual reproduction, a process by which some plants and animals create clones. Scientists have adapted this process and invented techniques to generate clones for a variety of purposes. In Reproduction and Cloning, learn how researchers have studied a variety of reproductive processes to develop technology to treat infertility and produce new plants and animals, sometimes through controversial means.
