Sexual Reproduction (basic)
Sexual reproduction is a type of reproduction requiring a male and female parent. The egg cell of the female is fertilised by the sperm cell of the male and the fertilised egg goes throgh stages of growth ending in the birth of an infant. The childs DNA consists of half the DNA of each parent, the combination of which gives a variety of possible physical charcteristics. The limits of the available genes tends to give the members of a family a similar appearance.
In some organisms the male and female parent may be the same. In plants for example there may be both male parts(stamens) and female parts(???) so the plant may be able to be fertilised by itself or there may be cross-polination with other plants of the same variety.
