Gametogenesis cells undergo meiosis to form gametes
Homologous chromosome chromosome pairs that are similar in length, gene position, and centromere location
Crossing over the exchange of genes between homologous chromosomes, resulting in a mixture of parental characteristics in offspring
Gonads reproductive organs
Spermatogenesis the production or development of mature spermatozoa.
Polar Bodies each of the small cells which bud off from an oocyte at the two meiotic divisions and do not develop into ova
Meiosis a type of cell division that results in four daughter cells each with half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell, as in the production of gametes and plant spores.
