What is regeneration? Give one example of an organism that shows this process and one organism that does not. Why does regeneration not occur in the latter?



Regeneration is an asexual mode of reproduction in which a complete organism can be regenerated from body parts of a parent organism.



  • Example of an organism that undergoes regeneration - Planaria
  • Example of an organism that does not undergo regeneration - Amoeba

Regeneration does not occur in amoeba because it does not have the special cells that are needed to carry out regeneration.
