Asexual reproduction
Asexual reproduction the simplest form of reproduction and does not involve meiosis, gamete formation, or fertilization. In laymen's terms, there is only one "parent" involved. This form of reproduction is most common among simple organisms such as amoeba and other single-celled organisms. However, many plants produce asexually as well.
