Will geographical isolation be a major factor in the speciation of an organism that reproduces asexually? Why or why not?
- Asexual reproduction does not involve exchange of genetic material of two parents.
- Parent DNA is passed onto offspring directly .
- Since only 1 parent is involved , it does not require the presence of another individual in the vicinity.
- Thus, geographical isolation will not be a major factor in the speciation of an organism that reproduces asexually.
