by: SITESH RANJAN DAS

Fertilization means the fusion of male gamets and female gametes.It is a complex process and it has dual function. After fertilization zygote is formed which is the primary cell of animal and it contains diploid number of chromosomes but each gamet carries haploid number of chromosomes.
