Study Notes

Gamete and Sexual Reproduction

  • A gamete is a specialized cell that fuses with another gamete during sexual reproduction, resulting in the formation of a zygote.

Sexual Reproduction

  • Sexual reproduction involves the fusion of two gametes, each contributing half of the genetic material, to form a zygote with a complete set of chromosomes.
  • This process increases genetic diversity by combining genetic information from two parents.

Commonality of Sexual Reproduction

  • Sexual reproduction is most common in multicellular organisms, such as animals, plants, and fungi.

Result of Gamete Combination

  • The result of the combination of gametes in sexual reproduction is a zygote, which develops into a new individual with a unique combination of genetic traits.

Exceptions to Sexual Reproduction

  • Sexual reproduction does not occur in single-celled organisms, such as bacteria, which reproduce asexually through binary fission or other mechanisms.
