Many fungi reproduce both sexually and asexually. However, some reproduce only sexually and some only asexually. Asexual reproduction involves just one parent and sexual reproduction involves two parents.
Through asexual reproduction, new organisms are produced that are genetically identical to the parent. That is, they have exactly the same DNA.
Fungi reproduce asexually through three methods:
Sexual generation unites qualities from the two guardians. This builds the hereditary assorted variety of the species. In plants and animals, sexual reproduction occurs when sperm and egg from two parents join to make a new individual.
Fungi can reproduce asexually by spores, budding, or fragmentation.
Fungi can reproduce sexually to create a zygospore.
