Asexual reproduction -is a mode of reproduction by which offspring arise from a single parent, and inherit the genes of that parent only; it is reproduction which does not involve meiosis, ploidy reduction, or fertilization.

Binary fission -produces two separate cells, populations, species, etc., whereas multiple fission produces more than two cells, populations, species, etc.

Budding -is a form of asexual reproduction in which a new organism develops from an outgrowth or bud on another one. The new organism remains attached as it grows, separating from the parent organism only when it is mature.Since the reproduction is asexual, the newly created organism is a clone and is genetically identical to the parent organism.

Sporformation-A mode of reproduction resembling multiple fission, common among Protozoa, in which the organism breaks up into a number of pieces, or spores, each of which eventually develops into an organism like the parent form.The formation of reproductive cells or spores, as in the growth of bacilli.

Fragmentation- (reproduction), a form of asexual reproduction

Parthenogenesis- ( /ˌpærθənoʊˈdʒɛnəsɪs/) is a form of asexual reproduction where growth and development of embryos occur without fertilization. In plants, parthenogenesis means development of an embryo from an unfertilized egg cell, and is a component process of apomixis.

In biology, regeneration is the process of renewal, restoration, and growth that makes genomes, cells, organs, organisms, and ecosystems resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage. Every species is capable of regeneration, from bacteria to humans.

Stem cuttings- are the most commonly used method of vegetative propagation. A stem cutting is plant stem including a tip (e.g. shoot, twig, sucker, ) or a  portion of a stem without  the apex that includes one or more nodes removed from a parent plant and capable of rooting; A stem cutting is  used to grow a...
