Field Work: Exploring Asexual Reproduction of Plants

Students completed field work at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Students visited the tropical & dessert biomes, they made observations on the habitat of several plants and completed several activities to help them understand asexual reproduction of plants.


*In all organisms, genetic traits are passed on from generation to generation. (2.2a)

* Some genes are dominant and some are recessive. Some traits are inherited by mechanism other than dominance and recessiveness. (2.2b)

*The probability of traits being expressed can be determined using models of genetic inheritance. Some models of predictions are pedigree and Punnett squares.
