Life Cycle Patterns

The haploid gametophye of a fern is reduced to a small, heart-shaped prothallus. In flowering plants, the haploid gametophyte is greatly reduced and consists of two microscopic structures: A seven-celled, eight-nucleate embryo sac containing the egg and endosperm mother cell, and a pollen grain plus ...

However, when one of these gametes fertilizes a haploid gamete from a normal diploid plant, the resulting zygote has three sets of chromosomes (ploidy = 3 n).

... where it comes into contact with an ovule The pollen grain germinates and the tube cell produces a pollen tube, which grows through the tissues of the megasporangium to an archegonium of the female gametophyte A haploid ( n ) sperm cell migrates through the pollen tube and fuses with a haploid ( n ...



ABSTRACT - In the last three to five years, doubled hap loid (DH) lines have increasingly been used in maize (Zea maysL.) research and breeding.


Meiosis and Sexual Life Cycles - 1

The chromosome number will have been reduced by half and the product cells are said to be haploid (n) . However, since the homologous pairs of chromosomes have equivalent genetic information, each meiotic product cell will have a one complete set of genetic information to contribute to the next ...
