Ascending one has the same notes as the natural minor scale, except that the 6th and 7th degrees are raised by one Semitone (1/2 step). This changes creates a Major 6th between 1st degree and the 6th degree and also a Major 7th between 1st degree and the 7th degree.The 7th degree becomes Leading Tone in both, Harmonic and Melodic version. The descending melodic minor is just another name for the natural minor scale.
