Describe double fertilization in plants.

Asked by Topperlearning User 25th July 2017, 1:37 PM
Answered by Expert

In plants, one male gamete fuses with the egg to form a diploid zygote. This fusion is called syngamy. The other male gamete fuses with the other two polar nuclei to form triploid primary endosperm nucleus. This fusion is called triple fusion. This mechanism of two acts of fertilization occurring in an embryo is called double fertilization.
