Why cell division in unicellular organisms be considered as reproduction?



  • There is only one cell in unicellular organisms like Amoeba, Paramecium, and Leishmania; and when that cell multiplies, new cells and organisms are produced.
  • Since cell division creates two separate daughter cells that are genetically identical to their respective parents, so genetically identical to their respective parents, it can be considered reproduction.
