Amphibians are vertebrate tetrapods. Amphibia includes frogs, salamanders, and caecilians. The term amphibian means “dual life,” which is a reference to the metamorphosis that many frogs undergo from a tadpole to an adult and the mixture of aquatic and terrestrial environments in their life cycle. In the sexual reproductive cycle, haploid generations of cells, each carrying a single set of chromosomes, alternate with diploid generations of cells, each carrying a double set of chromosomes (Figure ). Genomes mix when two haploid cells fuse to form a diploid cell. Later, new haploid cells are generated when a descendant of this diploid cell divides by the .
Fish reproductive organs include testes and most species, gonads are paired organs of similar size, which can be partially or totally fused. There may also be a range of secondary organs that increase reproductive fitness. The genital papilla is a small, fleshy tube behind the anus in some fishes, from which the sperm or eggs are released; the sex of a fish often can be . Reproduction and development of sexual characteristics in vertebrates is controlled directly by the hormones produced in the gonads, estrogens, progesterone and testosterone. Initially of course it is the genetic makeup of the individual that determines sex. Most vertebrates have a pair of chromosomes which are not identical (sex chromosomes).
Science is all about classification, and the animal kingdom has two basic groups: those without backbones, invertebrates, and those with backbones, vertebrates. Invertebrates Some animals, like humans, have backbones, but many others do g: sexual cycles. Textbook of Zoology Vertebrates. Authors (view affiliations) T. Jeffery Parker; William A.

The female reproductive system of amphibians, as in most vertebrates, consists of paired ovaries and oviducts. The system changes seasonally in accordance with the reproductive cycle.
The neuroendocrine systems influence the functions of the ovaries. The ovaries produce steroids, which control the oviductal changes. The cyclic reproductive events of female mammals are referred to as the estrous cycle and include a short period of heightened receptivity of the female for mating, which is called estrus.
The roles of hormones and paracrines during the ovarian cycle are separatedduring the follicular phase, ovulation, and the luteal phase. GCs are normally maintained in the blood at relatively low levels that fluctuate on circadian and circannual cycles to regulate energy availability and use.
As the level of challenge increases, the hypothalamus upregulates the hormone cascade, resulting in further release of GCs from the adrenal gland into the plasma. From a review of available data, it is clear that gonadal steroid profiles across the reproductive cycle and their hypothalamic–pituitary regulation have remained generally consistent across lizard species regardless of reproductive mode (e.g., oviparity vs.
viviparity, genotypic vs. temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD)). Sex in fishes is determined by genetically or environmentally based signals. The second vertebrate sex-determining gene, dmy/dmrt1by, was discovered in medaka (Oryzias latipes) but was found to be present only in two Oryzias species, illustrating the vast diversity of sex-determining genes in fishes.
Data accumulated from these species would be. The human sexual response cycle is a four-stage model of physiological responses to sexual stimulation, which, in order of their occurrence, are the excitement- plateau- orgasmic- and resolution phases. This physiological response model was first formulated by William H.

Life Cycles. Sexual reproduction occurs in a cycle. Diploid parents produce haploid gametes that unite and develop into diploid adults, which repeat the cycle.
This series of life stages and events that a sexually reproducing organism goes through is called its life cycle. Sexually reproducing organisms can have different types of life cycles. The Reproduction of Vertebrates describes the vertebrate reproductive systems in an evolutionary sequence and according to taxonomic classes.
This book is divided into seven chapters; each chapter tackles a specific vertebrate class. This text specifically considers fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, and man.
In this live Grade 12 Life Sciences show we take a look at Reproduction in Vertebrates. In this lesson we review the schematic outline of the human life cycle to show the role of meiosis, mitosis and fertilisation. We define sexual and asexual reproduction, copulation & fertilisation.

In this Grade 12 Life Sciences live show we take a look at Reproduction (Life Cycles, Asexual & Sexual). In this lesson we define reproduction in terms of sexual & asexual reproduction.
We compare asexual and sexual reproduction. We also look at Life Cycles with regards to alternation of generations as well as haploid and diploid states. As such, they complete their life cycle in two hosts. This cycle consists of both sexual and asexual cycles that occur in the vector/mosquito and vertebrate respectively.
Given that all malaria parasites are digenetic, the life cycle of P. falciparum will be used to describe the general life cycle of plasmodium in this section.species have complex life cycles with alternation of sexual and asexual stages. – Many require an intermediate host in which the larvae develop before infecting the final hosts (usually a vertebrate) where the adult worm lives.
