Why so many sperm are needed for fertilization to occur?
Actually, it only takes one sperm to fertilize the egg, but the problem is the journey to the egg. The male ejaculates so many sperm because most of them die on the way there, the lucky one that gets there cause the fertilization. ...
Asked in Science, Animal Life
In what way is an ovum adapted to carry out its special role?
The ovum is bound by many membranes preventing the breakage of it. The ovum contains food which is essential for the developing zygote. It forms a fertilization membrane after fertilization to prevent the entry of the other sperms. ...

How many sperm need to be produced to ensure fertilization of one ovum?
Normal sperm count is required for normal fertilization. Normal sperm count is between 60 to 120 million sperms per ml of the ejaculate. When the sperm count is below the 20 million sperms per ml, the chances of getting the pregnancy are very less. Although only one sperm can fertilize the ovum, many more indirectly help it to fertilize the ovum, by liberating the necessary enzymes. ...
What follows fertilization?
Assuming you mean in mammals, pregnancy follows fertilization. In plants, producing viable fruit would be next, and in many non-mammal animals, development of the embryo and then hatching would occur. ...

Why are eggs so much bigger than sperm?
That is a good question. Both egg and sperm has the same number of chromosomes. But then the size of the egg is very big compared to sperms. Here the egg has lot of food material stored in them. that is necessary for cell multiplication after the conception. sperms has to run fast for fertilization. You can not run fast with some heavy weight on your back. Also the number of the sperms is very high and so many big sperms...

How many sperms unite with the egg and what do you call this union?
Only one sperm unite with the egg nucleus at a time and this process is called fertilization. A zygote is formed after this union which later on develops in to an embryo. ...

Asked in Chromosomes
How many chromosomes does the father and mother have?
A mother have 46 chromosomes and a father have 46 chromosomes when they come together in fertilization these chromosomes splits 23 from the mother (egg) and 23 from the father (sperms) and so forming the new zygote which is the baby with 46 chromosomes ...
How many sperms are needed to get pregnant?
Just one needs to get to the egg. Chances go up when the male has a high sperm count. ...
Asked in Animal Life
What happen doing fertilization?
If your question is what happens during fertilization? the answer varies. If your are speaking about sexual reproduction then fertilization occurs when the sperm and egg combine. Basically the first sperm to get to the egg keeps it. The egg hardens to keep excess sperm from entering. (of course some errors can occur which will lead to defects, twins, triplets, etc.) There are many other phases to the reproduction process but fertilization is basically when the egg and sperm combine. ...

Why many sperm cell's needed to fertilize an egg cell?
Because out of a normal ejaculation of 200 million sperms, 90% are deformed which is normal. The actually fertilize an egg it only takes one. ...
Asked in Botany or Plant Biology
Can you have pollination without fertilization?
Yes, pollination is only the process of depositing the pollen on the stigma of the plant. The pollen tube then has to germinate and grow down the style in order for the sperm nucleus to fuse with the ovule. If the pollen is brushed off prior to germination, or the style is damaged, or the ovules are infertile then fertilization cannot occur - although pollination has. In many cases if the pollen reaching the stigma of another flower is not compatible, it will not...

Why is fertilization of flowers important to the farmer?
Fertilization of flowers is what creates the seed of many important crops. Since the seed or grain of many crops is what the farmer wants, without fertilization he would have no crop to harvest. ...
