Reproduction is a characteristic of all living organisms but it is accomplished in many different ways. We will investigate why sexual reproduction exists and why it may be an advantage. Then we will look into variations in how sexual reproduction occurs and how mates are selected. We will discuss how technology can interfere or assist with the natural process. Expect to discuss why sea horse males give birth, how a human male was pregnant, how a human baby might have 5 “parents” and why there are no hermaphrodite humans but there are lots of hermaphrodite fish and invertebrate animals.
