Quick Reference

The haploid adult form of those protoctists that have both haploid and diploid phases in their life cycles. Gamonts function in sexual reproduction; they undergo gametogony to produce diploid agamonts. Meiosis takes place in agamonts, and the haploid agametes that result disperse, undergo mitotic divisions, and differentiate into gamonts, completing the cycle.
