Meiosis Information

What is Meiosis?

Meiosis is a specialized type of cell division which reduces the chromosome number by half. This process occurs in all sexually reproducing eukaryotes including animals, plants, and fungi.

Why is Meiosis Important?

Meiosis is important because it ensure that all organisms produced sexual reproduction contain the correct number of chromosomes.

What are the Stages Involved in Meiotic Division?

  1. Prophase II
  2. Metaphase II
  3. Anaphase II
  4. Telophase II

Telophase II

The nuclear envelope forms around each set of chromosomes and cytokinesis occurs, producing four daughter cells each with a haploid set of chromosomes. A nuclear envelope forms around each set of chromosomes
