What does the word reproduction mean?

  • The total process by which organisms produce offspring. ( Stedman, 25th ed)

  • The function by which living bodies produce bodies similar to themselves. See Generation. As a general remark, it will be found true, that the larger animals are uniparons, and the smaller, which are more exposed to destruction, multiparous. The mammalia being of the same natural class as man, it may be useful to compare them in this respect.
