1. The gametic fusion takes place at the time of fertilisation when sperm and ovum fuse to form a diploid zygote.
2. The zygote is divided by mitotic division during its embroynic life and post embryonic life to form a well developed individual.
3. A mature individual produces gametes by gametogensis. Reductional division takes place at this stage and results in the formation of haploid gametes.
