What does it mean to reproduce

What does it mean to reproduce?

  • Reproduction — the process by which organisms make more organisms like themselves

  • This is one essential factor that sets living things apart from nonliving things

  • But even though the reproductive system is essential to keeping a species alive, unlike other body systems it's not essential to keeping an individual alive.

Human Reproductive Process

  • In sexual reproduction new individuals are produced by the fusion of haploid gametes to form a diploid zygote.

  • Sperm are male gametes, ova (ovum singular) are female gametes.

  • The male gamete, and the female gamete, meet in the female's reproductive system to create a new individual.


The male reproductive system

The Male Reproductive System?

  • Unlike the female, whose sex organs are located entirely within the pelvis, the male has reproductive organs, or genitals, that are both inside and outside the pelvis.

  • The male genitals include:

    • the testicles

    • the duct system, which is made up of the epididymis and the vas deferens

    • the accessory glands, which include the seminal vesicles and prostate gland

    • the penis


The purpose of the organs of the male reproductive system

The purpose of the organs of the male reproductive system:

  • To produce, maintain, and transport sperm (the male reproductive cells) and protective fluid (semen)

  • To discharge sperm within the female reproductive tract during sex

  • To produce and secrete male sex hormones responsible for maintaining the male reproductive system


How does the male reproductive system function

How Does the Male Reproductive System Function?

  • The entire male reproductive system is dependent on hormones, which are chemicals that regulate the activity of many different types of cells or organs.

  • The primary hormones involved in the male reproductive system are follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and testosterone.

  • Follicle-stimulating hormone is necessary for sperm production.

  • Testosterone is the hormone that causes guys to develop deeper voices, bigger muscles, and body and facial hair, and it also stimulates the production of sperm.


Male reproductive system

  • Penis — The penis is the male organ for sexual intercourse. It has three parts: the root, which attaches to the wall of the abdomen; the body, or shaft; and the glans, which is the cone-shaped end of the penis.

  • Scrotum — The scrotum is the loose pouch-like sac of skin that hangs behind the penis. It contains the testicles (also called testes), as well as many nerves and blood vessels.

  • Epididymis— The epididymis is a long, coiled tube that rests on the backside of each testicle. It functions in the transport and storage of the sperm cells that are produced in the testes.
