Beside this, where are egg cells produced?
Likewise, what is egg cell in plants? Egg cell or ovum: haploid female gamete (egg cell in plants, ovum or egg in animals) forming a zygote after fertilization, which gives rise to the diploid embryo. Egg apparatus: structure at the micropylar end of the embryo sac in seed plants, consisting of the egg cell and usually two synergid cells.
Considering this, do plants produce eggs?
In plants, there's a little break between meiosis and the production of sperm and eggs. The gametophyte is already haploid, so it produces sperm and egg by mitosis. The gametes merge, producing cells called zygotes that contain the same number of chromosomes as the parent plant — that is, the zygotes are diploid.
What is female sperm called?
In the human reproductive process, two kinds of sex cells, or gametes (GAH-meetz), are involved. The male gamete, or sperm, and the female gamete, the egg or ovum, meet in the female's reproductive system. When sperm fertilizes (meets) an egg, this fertilized egg is called a zygote (ZYE-goat).
