VII. Animal Structure, Reproduction and Development : Lecture 3 | 20:38 min
Animal development proceeds
from the union of an egg cell and a sperm cell to the formation of
an adult organism.
The important processes
involved in development are fertilization, cell division and growth,
the formation of different cell types, and the shaping of structures
that characterize the organism.
In this Lesson we'll explore
these processes using the amphibian embryo. We'll also look at
development in the human embryo from implantation to the formation
of the mature fetus.
