Products of reproduction.

Another word for offspring is progeny. Note that replication, in and of itself, does not necessarily result in the production of offspring since DNA replication, for example, is only one component of reproduction, though of course an important component!

See also birth, birth rate, reproductive episode, clutch, clutch size, iteroparity, and semelparity.
