http://www.webmd.com/sex-relationships/guide/your-guide-female-reproductive-system The female reproductive system is known for several functions. The primary function of the female reproductive system is to reproduce. Organs such as ovaries, fallopian tubes, the uterus and the vagina are what make up the internal female system. The labia majora, labia minora, Bartholin’s glands and clitoris serves as a protection to the internal organs. These organs assist in keeping unwanted, infectious organisms away. Infectious organisms such as STDs may cause harm to a woman whom is in her childbearing years. As an absence of the female reproductive systems, male reproductive system is needed for conception. The male reproductive organs consist of the penis, scrotum, testicles, epididymis, ejaculatory ducts and vas deferens. In a systematic process all organs, in females and males are used for conception. In the process of conception, the females’ egg cell is fertilized by the males’ sperm cell. In order for a woman to be proclaimed as in the first stage of pregnancy, the fertilized egg must be attached to the walls of the uterus. The fertilization process usually does not take place directly in the uterus but in the fallopian tubes. In the male and female reproduction systems there are several similarities, one being the fallopian tubes and vas deferens. In the female anatomy the fallopian tubes hold the ovaries and serve as the transporter of the egg to the uterus. In the male anatomy, the vas…
present day, there would be an ongoing debate regarding the legalization of cloning and whether scientists should be allowed to clone humans.
There are two forms of cloning: reproductive cloning and therapeutic cloning. Debate revolves around both types; however, there is more controversy regarding reproductive cloning. Reproductive cloning has the intent of reproducing a whole organism using a process called Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT). SCNT is completed by taking the nucleus out of a donor…
testes in males & ovaries in females. Produce sex cells (gametes) and secrete a variety of steroid hormones, called sex hormones. Androgens in males & estrogen and progesterone in females.
Accessory reproductive organs: ducts, glands, and external genitalia.
Anatomy of the Male Reproductive System
○ Sperm-producing testes lie within scrotum. The sperm then travels through the epididymis, the ductus (vans) deferens, the ejaculatory duct, and finally the urethra which opens to outside at the tip…

Chapter 19 - Reproductive Systems
19.1 Introduction (p. 520)
A. Male and female reproductive systems are a series of glands and tubes that produce and nurture sex cells, and transport them to the site of fertilization.
19.2 Organs of the Male Reproductive System (p. 520; Fig. 19.1; Table 19.1)
A. The male sex organs are designed to transport sperm to eggs.
B. Primary sex organs (gonads) produce sperm and hormones; accessory sex organs have a supportive function.
C. Testes (p. 520)…
other insects and is applied directly to crops, livestock, home gardens, and pets. It was designed as a safer alternative to the now banned DDT. MCX alters a gene in the female reproductive tract and reduces the ability of the uterus to support embryo implantation.
•Estrogen mimics wreak havoc on the human reproductive system. All humans, male and female included, manufacture estrogen. Cells within their bodies contain receptor sites for this estrogen. Estrogen mimics are close enough in structure…
The female reproductive system likewise contains two main divisions: the vagina and uterus, which will receive the semen, and the ovaries, which produces the ova. The vagina is attached to the uterus through the cervix, while the uterus is attached to the ovaries through the Fallopian tubes. At certain intervals, the ovaries release an ovum, which passes through the fallopian tube into the uterus.
The reproductive function of the uterus is to accept a fertilized ovum which passes through the utero-tubal…
is the process of creating “a genetic copy of a sequence of DNA or of the entire genome of an organism”(Stanford Encyclopedia). In fact, there are different types of cloning for various purposes, which include, not limited to molecular cloning, reproductive cloning, and embryo cloning. The announcement of the cloned innocent lamb caused worldwide concerns and panic and there is much controversy over various viewpoints because of its scientific, religious, and ethical implications. Since it has already…
