Spermatogenesis and Oogenesis

    We worked with reproduction this week in lab.  I am having difficulty understanding how spermatogenesis and oogenesis differ from meiosis.  Is each process just another way of saying sperm or egg production via meiosis, or are there additional steps in spermatogenesis and oogenesis that I am not familiar with?  In other words, is spermatogenesis essentially just meiosis resulting in sperm production, and is oogenesis essentially just meiosis resulting in egg production?
