REPRODUCTION IN PLANTS
description of unit
give rise to young ones of their kind. This is either by seeds or
vegetative part of the plant. The vegetative part may be a root,
stem or leaf.
In this Unit learners will learn about vegetative reproduction as
a form of asexual reproduction. They will also appreciate the fact
that new off springs can be produced both naturally and artificially
without involving the fusion of gametes.
