  1. Egg cells are fertilized in the
    oviduct
  2. Sperm cells are moved out of the testes in the
    vas deferens
  3. The gonads of females are
    ovaries
  4. The stimulus for contractions of the uterus to bring about birth is the hormone
    oxytocin
  5. the location of the placenta is
    in the uterus
  6. the settling of an embryo into the lining of the uterus is called
    implantation
  7. the structure in which meiosis occurs (which results in the formation of eggs) is the
    ovary
  8. the structure that transports sperm cells from the epididymis to the urethra is the
    vas deferens
  9. oogenesis normally produces                   gamete(s) from one germ cell
    one
  10. the job of the placenta is primarily associated with
    nourishment and waste removal
  11. which of these results in the production of only 1 gamete as a result of meiosis?
    oogenesis
  12. which of the following statements is correct for both spermatogenesis and oogenesis?
    they each have two meiotic divisions
  13. in humans, egg production (oogenesis) differs from sperm production (spermatogenesis) in that spermatogenesis
    produces many more cells than oogenesis
  14. the union of a sperm and egg is called
    fertilization
  15. spermatogenesis
    occurs in the seminiferous tubules
  16. sperm cells are produced in the
    testes
  17. which of the following combinations of chromosomes would be typical of a human male?
    an X- and a Y- chromosome
  18. oogenesis means
    egg formation
  19. the discharge of blood during the human female's period indicates that the
    lining of the uterus is being shed
  20. development of both the ovaries and testes are influenced by
    follicle-stimulating hormone
  21. the process of producing sex cells is
    gametogenesis
  22. when the egg leaves the oviduct, it normally passes directly into the
    uterus
  23. identical twins
    are the result of one fertilized egg dividing to become two individuals
  24. which of the following is NOT a part of the male human reproductive system?
    cervix
  25. the structure that carries the egg cell from where it is produced to the uterus is the
    oviduct
  26. which of the following most closely describes the cervix?
    a region between the uterus and vagina
  27. the male gametes are
    sperm
  28. fertilization produces
    zygotes
  29. the embryo develops into a fetus while it's within the
    uterus
  30. the cells that become eggs that a woman ovulates at age 40 were initially produced
    when she was a fetus
  31. in humans, egg production (oogenesis) differs from sperm production (spermatogenesis) in that oogenesis
    produces polar bodies
  32. the lining of the uterus is the most vascularized (thick and filled with blood vessels)
    at the onset of menstruation
