Transcript of "Biology 39.3"

  1. 1. 39.3 The Reproductive System<br />
  2. 2. Puberty<br />Period of rapid growth and sexual maturation during which the reproductive system becomes fully functional.<br />
  3. 3. Scrotum<br />External sac containing the testes.<br />
  4. 4. Seminiferous Tubule <br />One of hundreds of tiny tubules in the testes in which sperm are produced.<br />
  5. 5. Epididymis<br />Structure in the male reproductive system in which sperm fully mature and are stored.<br />
  6. 6. Vas Deferens <br />Tube that carries sperm from the epididymis to the urethra.<br />
  7. 7. Urethra <br />Tube that carries urine from the bladder and releases it from the body; in males, tube through which semen is released from the body.<br />
  8. 8. Penis <br />External male reproductive organ.<br />
  9. 9. Follicle<br />Cluster of cells surrounding a single egg in the human female reproductive system.<br />
  10. 10. Ovulation<br />Process in which an egg is released from the ovary.<br />
  11. 11. Fallopian Tube<br />One of two fluid-filled tubes in human females through which an egg passes after its released from an ovary.<br />
  12. 12. Uterus<br />Organ of the female reproductive system in which a fertilized egg can develop.<br />
  13. 13. Vagina<br />In the human female reproductive system, a canal that leads from the uterus to the outside of the body.<br />
  14. 14. Menstrual Cycle<br />Cycle during which an egg develops and is released from an ovary and the uterus is prepared to receive a fertilized egg. <br />
  15. 15. Corpus Luteum<br />Name given to a follicle after ovulation because of its yellow color.<br />
  16. 16. Menstruation<br />Phase of the menstrual cycle during which the lining of the uterus, along with blood and unfertilized egg, is discharged through the vagina.<br />

  18. 18. Key Concept<br />The main function of the male reproductive system is to produce and deliver sperm. <br />
  19. 19. Key Concept<br />The main function of the female reproductive system is to produce ova. In addition, the female reproductive system prepares the female’s body to nourish a developing embryo. <br />
  20. 20. Key Concept<br />The menstrual cycle has four phases: follicular phase, ovulation, luteal phase, and menstruation.<br />
