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).
