In asexual reproduction, a single individual
produces offspring that are genetically
identical to itself. Sponges and some coral
colonies reproduce asexually.
Regeneration (also called fragmentation or
clonal fragmentation) is a form of asexual
reproduction in which a detached piece of the
parent organism can grow and develop into a
completely new individual. Echinoderms reproduce
through regeneration. Star fish, brittle stars,
sea urchins, sand dollars, and sea cucumbers are
all Echinoderms. Several species of annelids and
flat worms also reproduce by this method.
