The process by which cells and organisms produce other cells and organisms of the same kind. &diamf3; The reproduction of organisms by the union of male and female reproductive cells (gametes) is called sexual reproduction. Many unicellular and most multicellular organisms reproduce sexually. &diamf3; Reproduction in which offspring are produced by a single parent, without the union of reproductive cells, is called asexual reproduction. The fission (splitting) of bacterial cells and the cells of multicellular organisms by mitosis is a form of asexual reproduction, as is the budding of yeast cells and the generation of clones by runners in plants. Many plants and fungi are capable of reproducing both sexually and asexually, as are some animals, such as sponges and aphids.

The regular alternation of forms or of mode of reproduction in the life cycle of an organism, especially the alternation between sexual and asexual reproductive phases in plants and some invertebrates. In plants, the alternation involves alternating generations of haploid and diploid organisms. Often one of these generations is the dominant form of the organism, and the other generation is nutritionally dependent upon it or just grows as a smaller plant. For example, in mosses and liverworts, the haploid phase is the large, familiar form of the plant. The diploid phase is smaller and grows upon the haploid phase. In angiosperms, however, the diploid phase of the organism is large and independent, while the haploid phase is reduced to the pollen grain and the eight-celled female gametophyte located in the ovule.
