During the process of meiosis diploid cells produce haploid cells. There are two types of haploid cells ovum (eggs) and sperm, these cells are called gametes.

Two haploid cells are produced from one diploid cell during Meiosis I and such cells are called secondary gametocytes . They form gametes by Meiosis II .

Fertilization is the process of combining two haploid cells to form a diploid cell. The new diploid cell is called a zygote.

The mushroom has two haploid nuclei in each cell, so if would have to be called diploid.

A somatic body cell contains two sets of chromosomes called diploid number. Gametes i.e. sperms and eggs have haploid number of chromosomes , they are produced by meiosis , they fuse to restore diploid number ,e.g. in man diploid no. is 46 and haploid no. is 23 .

A diploid cell. In the case you are referring to it is also called a "zygote".

Haploid and diploid cells are not part of biological "divisions". Haploid and diploid cells are part of the life cycle of a single species. "Divisions" separate whole groups of genera. Haploid cells contain a half measure of chromosomes while diploid contain a full measure for diploid organisms. There are polyploid organisms like wheat that is hexaploid (6 sets of chromosomes). Haploid cells come about from "division" of original diploid cells in a process called meiosis if that's what you mean by division.

That's a haploid cell. (Cells with the full set of chromosomes are called diploid.)Some plants and micro-organisms go through stages in their life when their bodies are made of haploid cells, but in animals, the only haploid cells are gametes (sperm and egg cells). They're haploid so that when they fuse together at fertilisation the full diploid number of chromosomes will be restored.Haploid cells are produced by a process called meiosis.

A sporophyte is the diploid form and a gametophyte is haploid form.

If nucleii are haploid,process is meiosis.If nucleii are diploid,process is mitosis.

All cells in the human body that are not gametes (sperm or egg cells) are diploid. Gametes are haploid.

A haploid cell only contains 23 chromosomes, whilst a diploid cell contains 23 x 2 chromosomes. When an egg cell (haploid) and a sperm cell (haploid) merge, a diploid cell is formed. Added: Called a zygote.

Female gametes are also called eggs or ova. They are created during the cellular reproduction process known as meiosis. The resulting gamete cell is a haploid cell. When the two haploid cells, the egg and sperm, fuse together during fertilization, the result is a diploid cell called a zygote.

meiosis is the process in which a parent cell divides to form (haploid) daughter cells having half the number of chromosomes as compared to the parent cell.These daughter cells produced by the process of meiosis are called gametes.When the male and female gametes fuse together they form the diploid zygote.This process is called fertilization.

A somatic, or body, cell is always, or at least typically, DIPLOID. Haploid cells which result from the process called Meiosis are "gametic", or germ, or sex, cells.

The fusion of two haploid gametes to form a new diploid cell is called fertilization. Self-fertilization in plants, the fusion of two gametes from the same individual to form a diploid offspring.

Haplo is the Greek word for one and di is the prefix of two or split Edited answer: When an organism has one set of chromosomes in its cells it is called a haploid and when two sets of chromosomes are present, it is called a diploid. In other words a diploid has double the number of chromosomes of a haploid cell or organism.

in your body, except in the reproductive organs,, they are called haploid

They are called haploid cells.Other cells are diploid cells.

Nucleus divided to form haploid cells.Process is called meiosis.

The process is called meiosis. It is the process where one diploid eukaryotic cell divides twice to generate four haploid cells.

No, meiosis is what produces (haploid) gametes. Mitosis produces diploid daughter cells that are identical clones of the mother cell.

The diploid cell that results from fertilization is called a zygote. It is a product of the fusion of two haploid gametes, the sperm and the egg.

Forming gametes (eggs and sperm) requires a Cell division process called meiosis. During meiosis the chromosomes in a diploid Cell are separated forming haploid gametes. So 1 diploid Cell will divide into 4 haploid gametes after a cycle of two divisions. "Why?" points to the fact that the original Distinction between the Evolution of exclusively Diploid Cells into the combination of Diploid and Haploid Cells occurred Five Hundred and Seventy Million Years Ago.
