Zygote formation without fertilisation?????

Expert Answer:

The term zygote refers to a cell formed by the fusion of male and female gamete. So zygote is always formed by fertilization. I think what you are referring to is parthenogenesis, i.e. a form of reproduction in which the egg develops into a new individual without fertilisation.
