Reproduction in Animals


Describe the process of fertilisation in human beings.


The fusion of a male gamete (sperm) with a female gamete (ovum) is called fertilization. Fertilization is the first step in the process of reproduction. During this process, the nuclei of the sperm and egg fuse to form a single nucleus. This results in the formation of a fertilized egg which is called a zygote. A zygote is the beginning of the formation of a new baby.
