Terminators: Wordplays for Ideas & Insights

Coming To Terms with Animal Cloning

"Clone" comes from the Greek 'klon' meaning twig or slip (as a scion). A clone is "the aggregate of the asexually produced progeny of an individual whether natural (as the products of repeated fission of a protozoan) or otherwise (as in the propagation of a particular plant by budding or by cuttings through many vegetative generations)." (Webster's Third New International Dictionary, 1961).
