Lesson Flashcards: Types of Sexual Reproduction Biology

Conjugation

The process by which two bacteria come in close contact and transfer genetic material by forming a bridge-like structure

Gametes (sex cells)

An organism’s reproductive cells that contain half the genetic material of a normal body cell

Zygote

A diploid cell resulting from the fusion of two haploid gametes

Alternation of generations

A pattern of reproduction that involves alternation between two distinct forms (sexual and asexual or haploid and diploid) for the same individual organism

Diploid cell

A cell that has two complete sets of chromosomes (2n)

Asexual reproduction

A type of reproduction that only involves one parent and does not involve the fusion of gametes
