In plants a specialized cell within an ovule that contains half of the genetic information needed to produce an offspring.
the cell from the mother that contributes half the genes of the embryo.
Female reproductive cell, also called the ovum.
In all sexually reproducing organisms, the female gamete; in birds, reptiles, and some other vertebrates, a structure witin which early embryonic development occurs.
Permeable structure enclosing and interacting with an embryo. Is a body part of the embryo, hence its fossil equivalent is a body fossil.

First stage in the development of an adult butterfly. Laid by adult female butterflies from which the caterpillar emerges.
The gamete produced by a female organism that, when fused with a sperm, leads to the creation of a new organism during the process of sexual reproduction. It is usually haploid and contributes half of the genetic material needed to make a new organism. This term can also be used to describe the structure laid by reptiles, amphibians and birds that contains the foetus and provides it with shelter and food during its development outside of the mother.
In insects, the reproductive body where the embryo develops and from which the nymph or larva emerges.
The female sex cell (ovum) which carries half the mother's chromosomes (and therefore, half the genes). In humans, this number is normally 23. The egg joins with the sperm at conception to produce an embryo. This process is called fertilisation.
General term for oocyte.
A very small piece that is stored in a female's ovary. It is also called a woman's sex cell. This works like a little envelope with all of the pieces and directions inside of it to make a person. A girl is born with all the EGGS she will ever have. This is about 1-2 million. The ovary pushes out one every month, about two weeks after a woman has her period. An EGG can live only two days after this happens. If a sperm enters the vagina and finds the EGG a woman can become pregnant.
Female sex cells that are produced by the ovary. One egg is released from the ovary each month during ovulation. At birth, the ovaries contain all of the eggs that a woman will ever have.

An egg or ovum is a female reproductive cell produced by the ovaries. After fertisation by a sperm (a male reproductive cell), the two cells fuse together to form a single cell, from which an embryo develops.
The first stage of life for most animals. Most insects have four stages in their life cycle, and the first stage is the egg. Frogs change from eggs to tadpoles to adults. Birds hatch from eggs and grow into adulthood. So do reptiles. So do spiders.
The gamete produced in the ovary of a woman, generally one egg is made each monthly cycle
cell produced by the ovary that contains half the normal amount of genetic material.

An egg is an excellent sign! It signifies fresh plans, fertility and increase in wealth and success in whatever you are currently undertaking.
A female gamete.
Obviously, a small paperweight in the shape of an egg, may have a flat bottom or be worked like a marble to a round bottom and then displayed in a ring holder or even an egg cup. Also may be a small blown shape, usually with considerable color to represent either an Easter Egg or a colored bird's egg.
The female reproductive cell. Also called ovum. close window
The reproductive element of birds Millions of chicken eggs are produced each year in the United States for human consumption. Duck eggs are popular fare in many parts of the world and Goose eggs are valued for their uses in baking. Hatching eggs refer to fertile eggs that will be set by a hen or hatched in an incubator. A chicken egg must be incubated for 21 days while geese require 30-31 days to hatch.
A female reproductive cell, also called an oocyteor ovum.
Butterflies and moths hatch from eggs. Butterflies usually lay their eggs on leaves. They are oviparous.
Slang term for the oval GolfCross® ball.
the mature female germ cell; also called the “ovum” or “oocyte”.
(noun) - the first stage in a butterfly's life cycle. The larva or caterpillar hatches from a butterfly egg.
A female reproductive cell, also called an oocyte or ovum.
The round or oval female reproductive body of various animals, consisting usually of an embryo surrounded by nutrient material and a protective covering.
This is the "first" stage in the life cycle of most insects, after the adult and before the larva. The length of time of this stage differs from specie to specie, after which it will emerge into a first instar larvae.
The female reproductive cell (ovum) surrounded by a protective calcium shell and, if fertilized by the male reproductive cell (sperm) and properly incubated, capable of developing into a new individual.
Bird eggs are a common food source (most commonly those from the chicken, duck, and goose). Both parts of the egg can be used in skin care recipes as it conditions. The whites are best for normal and oily skin; and the yolks are best used for dry to normal skin. The egg white also adds silkiness and tightens.
Anything egg shaped brings good luck. However, eggs are also a powerful fertility charm; they should not be used indiscriminately.
The microscopic cell of the female; the true egg; the female germ cell.
a female reproductive cell stored in the ovaries from birth that carries genetic information. The ovary contains 100s of thousands of eggs.
The microscopic reproductive cell of the female; the true egg or ovum. Also see Avian egg.
The ovoid, hard-shelled reproductive body produced by a bird, consisting principally of a yolk and albumen; it is a good source of protein, iron, sulfur and vitamins A, B, D and E but also relatively high in cholesterol.
Lay term for oocyte. The largest cell in the human body. Unites with the sperm to make a zygote and eventually a baby. Carries 23 chromosomes.
A reproductive cell produced by the ovary; also called an ovum.
1). In insects, the reproductive body in which the embryo develops and from which the nymph or larva hatches. 2). In plants, the female ovum, pertaining to reproductive cells.
The female reproductive cell. The ovaries contain tiny eggs (ova â€“ plural for ovum). Once menstruation begins, an egg is released from one of the ovaries each cycle. Pregnancy occurs when an egg meets up with a sperm after sexual intercourse.
The female's reproductive cell, or ovum, after it has been fertilized.

The first stage in the butterfly life cycle.
The female reproductive cell, also known as the ovum, which when united with a sperm, can become fertile and create life.
A hard-shelled thing that birds lay with everything inside of it needed to produce a baby bird. Note: The eggs we eat are not fertilized, so they would not develop into baby chicks.
Germ (reproductive) cell produced by a female.
Most eggs come from hens, but duck, goose, and quail eggs are also available. Eggs should be refrigerated in the original container, large end up. Because the yolk is high in cholesterol, imitation eggs come from egg whites and additives.
the female gamete (haploid sex cell derived by meiotic division).
(Oocyte) -- The female reproductive cell.
The mature female reproductive cell.
Some animals hatch from eggs. Fossilized eggs from some prehistoric animals have been found.
Female gamete; ovum.
The female reproductive cell or gamete.
All animals and plants, except for the most primitive types, begin their journey toward independent life when an egg is fertilized. An egg is a single female germ cell, or reproductive cell. It eventually develops into a new organism after it has been fertilized by a male germ cell. The egg cells of plants, when fertilized, develop into seeds.
In most birds and reptiles, an egg (Latin ovum) is the zygote, resulting from fertilization of the ovum. It nourishes and protects the embryo. Oviparous animals are animals that lay eggs, with little or no other development within the mother.
An egg is an ovum produced by a female animal for reproduction, often prepared as food. Eggs are a source of protein.
