Number 3 is incorrect. Darwin ended the controversy.

It's mitosis your talking to.

No need to be rude. She's just doing her best. What goes around comes around (judgement will come back to bite you in the butt if you use it against people). <3

What do you mean by "real reproduction"? Reproduction comes from the prefix re- and the verb "produce". So duplication really seems to be a particular case, just as sexual reproduction.

Kittou says:

duplication is better, in fact. The problem with "replication" is that we already use it for DNA… I've check the "reproduction" out, and you were right: in theory, we should call it asexual reproduction (because of the idea of "expanding the population by meiosis/mitosis") but I asked to my Cell Biology teacher and he agreed with me: it's really more a duplication with the goal of expansion than a real reproduction.

Eay5paev says:

I'd be ok to call it duplication for instance, but then I would lack a word to describe the unique charasteristic of all life which consists of "making a copy of oneself". Maybe "replication", then?

Kittou says:

Not really, we call it reproduction because of the "mitosis part". But, it's not really reproduction.

Eay5paev says:

Parthenogenesis is a form of asexual reproduction, but it's still reproduction.

Kittou says:

for studying in Biology, the answer of "What is life?" could be very interesting! As you said, Viruses don't belong to "life organism" neither "dead organism" (or minerals) ! LOL
By the way, reproduction is not something important for EVERY species: most of bacteria, or archea, don't reproduce… one mother cell just divide in tow daugter cells: there is no reproduction in here. :)

Eay5paev says:

Cool. I'm surprised none of these five principles talk about reproduction, though. Also, a question you could ask is: what is life? It's not as obvious as it sounds, as some organisms blurry the frontier, such as viruses.
