cleavage stage
  • cleavage stage
    The first few specialized divisions of an activated animal egg; Stage consisting of division of cells in the early embryo. The zygotes of many species undergo rapid cell cycles with no significant growth, producing a cluster of cells the same size as the original zygote. The different cells derived from cleavage are called blastomeres and form a compact mass called the morula. Cleavage ends with the formation of the blastula.

Additional detail
equal cleavage
  • equal cleavage
    In equal cleavage, the first two cell divisions produce four macromeres that are indistinguishable from one another.

breeding season
  • breeding season
    The breeding season is the most suitable season, usually with favorable conditions and abundant food and water, for breeding. Abiotic factors such as the timing of seasonal rains and winds can also play an important role in breeding onset and success.
