  31. Advantages and Disanvantages of high surface area to volume ration
    • Advantage: a high surface area to volume ration (SA/V) means a cell can more easily maintain itself, can grow larger and become more complex.
    • Disadvantage: he danger of a high SA/V ratio is the substances dangerous to the cell can more easily get in
  32. Advantage and Disadvantage to asexual reproduction:
    • Advantage: enable the organism to use its energy resources most effectively on reproduction
    • Disadvantage: is the lack of genetic diversity, possibly leading to decreased fitness
  33. Advantage and Disadvantage to sexual reproduction:
    • Advantage: the genetic diversity it produces and the resulting increase in fitness
    • Disadvantage: the inefficient use of energy in seeking and competing for mates
  34. Binary Fission:
    one individual splits into two

    fertilization of a gamete by another
