It is said that ‘’ Nature has invented reproduction as a mechanism for life to move forward. As a life force it passes right through us and makes us a link in the evolution’’. Reproduction is one of the essentials elements to live it is one of the characteristics of all living things; in fact, The process by which gametes are formed is the Gametogenesis which, is the combination of meiotic and mitotic divisions that happen to form gametes; although, spermatogenesis and oogenesis both do happen in a productive organs and both produce haploid cells that get involved in fertilizations, there are many differences including the the location and the process of producing haploid cells differ.

The stage primary spermatocytes divides to form two secondary spermatocytes then the secondary divides by meiosis 2 to produce two spermatids spermatocytes that eventually forms four spermatozoa nucleus undergoes condition in the sperm reserve in the food it produces motile male gametes. Two meiotic divisions meiosis 1 and II to produce haploid offsprings..The male cells produce sperms which are named germinal cells or primordial cells; these cells go phases for the formation of spermatids, The multiplication stage is where the cells contain enormous capacity of chromatin nuclei the cells keep repeating in mitotic divisions and start to produce spermatogonia. In addition spermatogonia is diploid and it has twice the number of chromosomes. Ending the multiplication stage and the beginning of the …show more content…
the oogenesis growth phase lasts longer than the spermatogenesis, The timing is difference between spermatogenesis that starts at puberty to form the sperm in male, however meiosis happens at birth in females. The spermatogenesis in males is a continuous process, unlike oogenesis in females, as oogonia start to produce then capture metaphase II, meiosis will be fixed if the egg is ‘fertilised’. In females the meiotic divisions are usually leading to producing two polar bodies at the same time meiosis completes the job. In spermatogenesis the more the mitochondria is the less the cytoplasm,but in oogenesis the less the mitochondria the more the
