One of the masses of generative tissue primitively alike in both sexes, but giving rise to either an ovary or a testis; a generative gland; a germ gland.
Sex gland: female ovary or male testicle
an organ that produces cells (oocytes, spermatozoa) and hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone) necessary for reproduction ( e.g., ovary [female] or testis [male]).
Reproductive organs in which the testes produce sperm in men and the ovaries produce ova in women.
Any of the usually paired organs in animals that produce reproductive cells (gametes). These include female ovaries, which produce eggs, and male testes, which produce sperm. Gonads also secrete hormones that influence secondary sexual characteristics.
An organ that produces gametes; ovaries or testes.
The part of the reproductive system that produces and releases eggs (ovary) or sperm (testicle/testis).
Greek = reproduction, hence a gland producing gametes - ovary or testis, adjective - gonadal.
a male or female sex organ.
An organ in which either sperm or eggs are produced; general name for either the testes or ovary.
sexual structure in animals that produces gametes
an organ that produces both gametes and hormones; the ovary in the female and the testis in the male
One of the primary sex glands. For example: ovaries, testes.
(Greek, gonos = seed) A gamete-producing organ; an ovary or testis. (More? Week 1 Notes)
(go´ nad) [Gr. gone: seed, that which produces seed] • An organ that produces sex cells in animals: either an ovary (female gonad) or testis (male gonad).
a reproductive gland (ie, an ovary or testis).
Organs of animals which produce gametes.
(GO-nahd) An organ that produces gametes and sex hormones. In the male it is the testes, and in the female it is the ovaries.
The reproductive organ that contains the developing sperm or eggs. The mature male gonads are the testes, and the mature female gonads are the ovaries.
a gland in which gametes (sex cells) are produced
an animal organ producing gametes, e
a sex organ that produces gametes, specifically the testes or ovaries in en
reproductive organs i.e. testis (male) and ovaries (female).
Testicle and ovary where gametes are produced and/or stored.
A testicle (male) or ovary (female).
An organ that produces the sex cells. In the females these are the ovaries and in the males the testes.
A organ that produces reproductive cells. In male hummingbirds, the paired testes; in females, the functional left ovary.
A reproductive gland (ovary or testis) that produces germ cells (gametes). See the entire definition of Gonad
A reproductive organ; an ovary or testicle
an organ that produces gametes (ova and sperm), i.e., an ovary or a testis
An organ that produces gametes (eggs or sperm). The oyster gonad lies between the digestive gland and the mantle. The size and thickness of the gonad vary seasonally.
a sex gland; the ovary in the female, the testicle in the male.
The organ that produces the reproductive cells, the testicle in the male and the ovaries in the female.
Primary sex gland: testis in the male and ovary in the female.
The gland that makes reproductive cells and "sex" hormones: the testicles, which make sperm and testosterone, and the ovaries, which make eggs (ova) and estrogen.
reproductive organ producing either sperm or eggs.
An organ that produces sex cells (testes or ovaries). (SMD)
The primary sex organ of the female (ovary) or the male (testis). The gonad is the source of gametocytes and sex steroids.
gonada] the ovaries or testes, the organ that produces gametes, eggs or sperm.
The organ that forms the reproductive cells. In females, this is the ovary. In males, it is the testicles.
A gender-neutral word for an organ that contains germ cells and produces gametes, namely the ovary and the testis.
A male reproductive gland.
organ containing reproductive products - ovaries in female, testes in male.
The gland that makes reproductive cells and sex hormones, for example the testicles in the male and ovaries in the female.
The male or female reproductive organ which produces the gametes. Testis in males, ovary in females.
A sex gland (ovary or testis).
The gonad is the organ that makes gametes. Gametes are haploid germ cells. For example, sperm and egg cells are gametes.
