Male denotes an animal which produces sperm cells in order to reproduce. The male is one half of a heterogamous reproduction system, where the female is the other half. What actually differentiates a female from a male is not always apparent, and in some cases more a question of definition than anything else.


'Male' and 'female' designate reproductive structures in plants, so the concept is not just limited to animals.
