Sexual reproduction requires two different sets of (haploid) genes from two parents to produce an offspring (diploid). 


Asexual reproduction only requires one parent, with said parent often splitting off a part of itself to form a clone - for example: fleas, earthworms and certain plant species. Most commercial plant propagation is done asexually (cuttings, tissue culture etc.)
