Basic Processes All organisms reproduce and almost every different type of organisms have its own special and unique way of doing it. With bacteria, there are two different ways it can reproduce. These two methods are called asexual and sexual reproduction. With asexual reproduction, it only involves one bacterium. The bacterium makes an exact copy of its self, which would be its offspring. With sexual reproduction, two bacteria join together and exchange their genetic makeup. Once the information is exchanged, each cell will go through binary fusion to make replicas of them with a new genetic makeup. Unlike bacteria, grasshoppers reproduce sexually. The male grasshopper introduces sperm into the female’s ovipositor through its aedeaqus, which id the reproductive organ. The sperm then enters the female’s eggs through small canals names micropyles. Once the eggs are fertilized, the female digs a

The female lays the eggs and then a male fish covers them in sperm, which fertilizes the eggs. Some fish reproduce internally. This occurs when the male fish internally fertilizes the fish eggs and instead of laying the eggs, the fish gives birth to live fish. Unlike fish, bears only have one way of reproducing and that is sexually. Bears tend to mate in the spring. The female bear leave a scent which attracts male bears. The male and the female bears mate and the male bear’s sperm fertilize the egg. Even though the egg is fertilized, it is not implanted in the womb until the following fall. This is called delayed implantation. The female will then give birth to a live offspring in three to nine months....
