Answers:One key feature in asexual reporduction is SPEED! it is much, MUCH faster then sexual reproduction. Asexual reporduction occurs via. mitosis, producing genetically identicle cells called clones. Although it is fast, it has one major disadvantage. Since all cells are genotypically and phenotypically identicle, if an environmental insult should come, it would destroy ALL the organisms and hence make the organism prone to extinction. Sexual reproduction involves the combining of genetic information from two cells into one hence producing an offspring which is genotypically distinct yet has traits of both the "mother" cell and the "father" cell. If an environmental insult should come, it may have the unique traits necessary for the organism to survive and hence makes such organisms much less prone to extinction. These variation which occur during sexual reproduction is the basis for adaption to the ever changing environment.
