Differentiate between internal fertilization and external fertilization.

The differences between internal fertilization and external fertilization are:

Reproduction is an important process as it ensures the continuation of similar kinds of individuals, generation after generation.

Describe the process of fertilisation in human beings.

The fusion of male and female gamete is called fertilization. Internal fertilization takes place in humans. Male releases sperms inside female’s body. Sperms and ovum fuse together in fallopian tube, during fertilization, the nuclei of the sperm and the egg fuse to form a single nucleus. This results in the formation of the zygote.
