SEXUAL REPRODUCTION: INVOLVES FERTILIZATION

FERTILIZATION: INVOLVES FUSION OF GAMETES

AT FERTILIZATION THE DIPLOID NUMBER (2n) IS RESTORED

GAMETES = SEX CELLS (SPERM & OVA), PRODUCED BY MEIOSIS

THEREFORE, REGARDING EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT:

CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT OF TISSUES, ORGANS AND SYSTEMS

FROM THE ZYGOTE, THROUGH 9 MONTHS, UP TO BIRTH.

AFER BIRTH, DEVELOPMENT CONTINUES, UP TO ADULTHOOD.

ADULTHOOD DEFINED BIOLOGICALLY; MATURITY OF SEXUAL ORGANS.

THAT IS, CAPABLE OF REPRODUCING:

FOR WOMAN: OVULATING MATURE EGGS AND CAPABLE OF SUSTAINING A PREGNANCY

FOR MAN: PRODUCTION OF COMPETENT SPERM AND CAPABLE OF SEXUAL INTERCOURSE
