What role does mitosis play in asexual reproduction?

1 Answer

Helps the growth of body.


  1. The mitosis helps the multiplcation of the asexually reproducing organisms. By repeated mitosis division of cells, the somatic cells increase in number. The cells are differentiated into different kinds pf tissues for the body of organisms.
  2. So, the increase in the number cells by repeated mitosis divisions ultimately help the growth and diferentiation of asexually reproducing organisms e.g., the buds of Hydra and cutting of rose ultimately differentated into mature organisms by mitosis.
    Thank you.
