Flashcards in Chapter 2.4 Reproduction Deck (12):
1

The cells in the bodies of most multicellular organisms are

diploid

2

Multicellular organisms produce sex cells called

gametes which are usually haploid

3

Gametes are either

male or female

4

In flowering plants, gametes are produced in the

flwoers

5

Male gametes in flowering plants are inside

pollen grains made in the anthers of flowers

6

Pollen grains are adapted for different types of

pollination

7

Female gametes in flowering plants are inside

ovules made in the ovaries of flowers

8

In male animals the gametes are called

sperm cells and are made in the testes

9

Sperm cells are very small and are said to be

motile because they can swim independently

10

In female animals, the gametes are called

ova and are made in ovaries

11

Ova are

large cells with a food supply

12

In both animals and plants, fertilization involves the fusion of

haploid gamete nuclei to form a diploid zygote which then develops into an offspring.
