Amoeba multiplies by mitotic cell division. Is this phenomena growth or reproduction? Explain.
Amoeba is a unicellular organism. The terms growth and development maybe equally applicable for it since its reproduction is dependent on its growth. In multi-cellular organisms, mitosis is responsible for growth of cell numbers. In case of amoeba, because it is a single cell organism, its growth via mitosis is the same as reproduction since it divides to give rise to new individual.
