Unformatted text preview: Gabi Drusinsky, 994727868 2.28.10 Biology 2A, assignment #6 Whats in a Name? There are several ways which are usually used to classify a species through DNA sampling, through ways of sexual reproduction, through phenotype, etc. The group of small multi-cellular organisms found recently, however, reproduces both sexually and asexually, using about a 50:50 ratio. Therefore I would suggest using more than one approach simultaneously. Most eukaryotes (that is, multi-cellular organisms) reproduce asexually. However, there are a few who dont need a partner to make progeny. The starfish is a good example if an arm breaks off, the starfish not only re-grows the arm, but the broken section arm can re-grow an entire starfish! So, this new assemblage or organisms would differ from many of the strictly sexual multi-cellular organisms just from its ability to reproduce asexually, like the starfish. It would also differ from strictly asexual eukaryotes by its ability to also reproduce sexually...
