A species of mud snail was studied for five years. During this time, scientists observed the season in which they mated, the number of offspring they produced, and the results of such stressors as drought, famine, and lack of mates. Which question were the scientists most likely studying? Asexual and Sexual ReproductionAre mud snails able to reproduce both asexually and sexually?
Which of these pairings is correct? Asexual and Sexual Reproductionmitosis, part of asexual reproduction because it produces diploids
