Dear Student,
Fertilization is the process of fusion of two gametes. In animals, the process involves the fusion of an ovum with a sperm, which eventually leads to the development of an embryo.
Incase of plants, fertilization takes place between the sperm nuclei from the pollen tube and egg within the ovary.
