Gamete \Gam"ete\ (g[a^]m"[=e]t; g[.a]*m[=e]t"; the latter
usually in compounds), n. [Gr. gameth` wife, or game`ths
husband, fr. gamei^n to marry.] (Biol.)
A sexual cell or germ cell having a single set of unpaired
chromosomes; a conjugating cell which unites with another of
like or unlike character to form a new individual. In Bot.,
gamete designates esp. the similar sex cells of the lower
thallophytes which unite by conjugation, forming a zygospore.
The gametes of higher plants are of two sorts, sperm (male)
and egg (female); their union is called fertilization, and
the resulting zygote an o["o]spore. In Zo["o]l., gamete is
most commonly used of the sexual cells of certain Protozoa,
though also extended to the germ cells of higher forms.
