Wikipedia

  1. Fertilisation

    Fertilisation or fertilization (see spelling differences), also known as generative fertilisation, syngamy and impregnation, is the fusion of gametes to give rise to a new individual organism or offspring and initiate its development. While processes such as insemination or pollination which happen before the fusion of gametes are also sometimes informally referred to as fertilisation, these are technically separate processes. The cycle of fertilisation and development of new individuals is called sexual reproduction. During double fertilisation in angiosperms the haploid male gamete combines with two haploid polar nuclei to form a triploid primary endosperm nucleus by the process of vegetative fertilisation.

  1. fertilisation

    Fertilisation is the biological process in sexual reproduction where the male gamete (sperm) unites with the female gamete (egg or ovum) to produce a fertilised egg, known as a zygote. This process typically occurs within the female's reproductive system and eventually leads to the development of offspring.

  1. Fertilisation

    Fertilisation is the fusion of gametes to initiate the development of a new individual organism. In animals, the process involves the fusion of an ovum with a sperm, which eventually leads to the development of an embryo. Depending on the animal species, the process can occur within the body of the female in internal fertilisation, or outside. The entire process of development of new individuals is called reproduction.
