And please, some of you really need to take a class in biology, if you think asexual organisms can`t evolve, please, read a book, take a class, something.
I`m quite disappointed with it. I`ll leave it on another night...
EXCUSE me? Did you just say bacteria were on the verge of extinction?! Because they are most definitely NOT. Bacteria have been around since life began. Bacteria exists on every continent, in every climate, in every nook and cranny. Your gut is full of bacteria.
Also, to ser the rest of you straight, organisms do, infact, evolve without sexual reproduction. How else would evolution have ever passed the asexual stage?
And I agree..but isn`t that what you came here to do in the first place???
...and theoretically, evolution is possible through asexual reproduction because of mutations. If you look closely, you will see a number of different looking organisms at the beginning, but only the faster ones survive...more food...faster reproduction...
And by the way, a virus is techincally nonliving. It`s basically a tiny little piece of DNA that tricks your body into making more of it. They can`t reproduce on their own, and most definitely don`t use asexual reproduction in the same way a bacterium does.
They do mutate by "accident" in essentially the same way, however. But they don`t "eat" or carry out any cellular functions such as digestion or reproduction.
It says in the paragraph above the Java application that over time it`s the genetic mutation that becomes evident. Yes, it is a clone, but mutation happens over time and causes the organism to change. This is why asexual bacteria have lived for millions of years, surviving climate change by mutation... and NO, bacteria are not on the verge of extinction, actually. Many bacteria cannot be wiped out easily, and it are the ones that can right now that are mutating and changing to become stronger and more resistant to our methods of getting rid of them. =)
Is the site.
