Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short by simply answering these key questions:
Can you list the top facts and stats about Ovum?
Summarize this article for a 10 years old
The egg cell, or ovum (PL: ova), is the female reproductive cell, or gamete, in most anisogamous organisms (organisms that reproduce sexually with a larger, female gamete and a smaller, male one). The term is used when the female gamete is not capable of movement (non-motile). If the male gamete (sperm) is capable of movement, the type of sexual reproduction is also classified as oogamous. A nonmotile female gamete formed in the oogonium of some algae, fungi, oomycetes, or bryophytes is an oosphere. When fertilized the oosphere becomes the oospore.[clarification needed]
