Spermatogenesis: the process of formation of sperms is called spermatogenesis. It occurs in the seminiferous tubules of the testes. The transformation of spermatids into spermatozoa is called spermiogenesis or spermateliosis. The process is usually divided into four stages: the Golgi phase, the cap phase, formation of tail, and the maturation stage. It is the production of mature, motile spermatozoa from the spermatids. The spermatids are small, less circular cells. It is the production of mature, motile spermatozoa from the spermatids. The spermatids are small, less circular cells. It is the production of mature, motile spermatozoa from the spermatids. The spermatids are small, less circular cells.

In these process, spermatids undergo a series of charges resulting in the production of the spermatozoa. It is the process of transformation of haploid spermatids into spermatozoa (sperms). It involves only the differentiation phase, therefore, it is a part of spermatogenesis.

These changes are —

  • Formation of the acrosome,
  • Condensation of the nucleus,
  • Formation of the neck, middle piece, and tail.
  • Shedding of most of the cytoplasm.
