WHAT DOES FERTILIZATION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

fertilization

Fertilisation

Fertilization is the fusion of gametes to initiate the development of a new individual organism. In animals, the process involves the fusion of an ovum with a sperm, which eventually leads to the development of an embryo. Depending on the animal species, the process can occur within the body of the female in internal fertilisation, or outside. The cycle of fertilisation and development of new individuals is called sexual reproduction.

Definition of fertilization in the English dictionary

The first definition of fertilization in the dictionary is the union of male and female gametes, during sexual reproduction, to form a zygote. Other definition of fertilization is the act or process of fertilizing. Fertilization is also the state of being fertilized.
