Regarding this, what are the different types of cleavage?
Four major holoblastic cleavage types can be observed in general: radial, spiral, bilateral, and rotational. Egg cells that have larger quantities of yolk undergo meroblastic cleavage after fertilization, in which only a portion of the zygote undergoes cleavage.
Similarly, why is bird cleavage Discoidal? discoidal : disc of cells is produced at animal pole of zygote. as birds has megalecicithal eggs, the yolk provides resistance to cleavage, hence the cleavage is meroblastic & discoidal. meroblastic cleavage occurs in insects & reptiles also but it is not discoidal , it is suferficial ( having centrolecithal eggs).
Likewise, which type of cleavage occurs in humans?
Cleavage in human zygote Cleavage in the human zygote occurs during its passage through the fallopian tube to the uterus as in other mammals. It is holoblastic. The first cleavage takes place about 30 hours after fertilization. It is meridional, coinciding with the animal-vegetal pole axis.
What type of cleavage occurs in frog?
Cleavage in most frog and salamander embryos is radially symmetrical and holoblastic, just like echinoderm cleavage. The amphibian egg, however, contains much more yolk. This yolk, which is concentrated in the vegetal hemisphere, is an impediment to cleavage.
