					                             Reproduction, Growth and Development
The development of organisms involves precise regulation of many complex processes. There are many factors, which
may have adverse effects on fertilisation and on embryonic and foetal development. On the other hand advances in
technology have greatly increased the chances of survival during these stages of development.

Your task is to investigate and report on one aspect of reproduction and development. Information should include
where appropriate latest technologies. A bibliography must be included in your report.
You can present your report in one of four ways:
1. Multimedia power-point presentation
2. Informative poster
3. Informative pamphlet
4. Scientific Journal article

Some appropriate ideas for research include:
    Marsupial embryonic development
    Invitro fertilisation
                                                        Artificial insemination
                                                        Cloning
                                                        Plant propagation
                                                        Donor eggs and sperm
                                                        Amniocentesis
                                                        Ultrasound
                                                        Patterns of growth and development
                                                        Selective breeding
                                                        Chorion villi sampling
                                                        Gamete intrafallopian transfer
