    Abstract

    Asexual reproduction by fission and regeneration are two primitive characters exhibited by echinoderms. Generally they reproduce asexually fragmentation (fission), budding, parthenogenesis, and polyembryony. Fission (autotomy) a common method of reproduction usually involves the division of the body into two or more parts and regeneration of the missing body parts. This phenomenon can occur in populations that are reproducing sexually also.
