It's a Growing Concern!

When growing conditions change, plant populations must also change to survive.  Many plants reproduce sexually by creating seeds or spores which helps them to maintain a high level of genetic diversity.  Other plants reproduce asexually by making clones of themselves.  All plants have ways to move their seeds or spores, so they can spread and grow in new places.


    Seeds and Spores



The total number of individuals of a species occupying a given area. For example, the total number of Big Brown Bats in the Cypress Hills Inter Provincial Park.


Reproduction characterized by the union of a male and female gametes. Also, possessing male or female gametes.


Genetic Diversity
The variety of inherited characters that exist in a population of organisms.


Any type of reproduction not involving the union of gametes. Reproduction from only one parent.
