Cell identification - germ cells in haploid male ants

Female ants don't make sperm cells. ;) Other than that, I'm pretty sure gametogenesis in haploid insects only uses mitosis. There isn't much information about this around, so you should do your own investigation! Let us know the results if you do. :)

Cell identification - germ cells in haploid male ants

... go through a maturation process before becoming sperm cells (gametes), at least in some organisms. http://www.biology-questions-and-answers.com/gametogenesis.html I assume the male haploid germ cells and other intermediate cells are identified in some way, so they can't be utilized as sperm ...

Mitosis vs. Meiosis in animals spec. Humans also

... of sex cells http://faculty.clintoncc.suny.edu/faculty/michael.gregory/files/bio%20101/bio%20101%20lectures/meiosis/meiosis.htm go down to the gametogenesis and that's because you cannot just divine your current cells with meiosis, but you still need to keep some precursors for futher gamete ...

Re:

Sorry, I miswrote that, it should be but fertilization does NOT influence the variation, that's influenced by the segragation during gametogenesis Are you sure, that mutations should be omitted?
