All the steps and other extra information.
DefinitionA type of cellular reproduction in which the number of chromosomes are reduced by half through the separation of homologous chromosomes, producing two haploid cells.
FunctionGenetic diversity through sexual reproduction.
Type of ReproductionSexual
Occurs inHumans, animals, plants, fungi.
Crossing OverYes, mixing of chromosomes can occur.
Pairing of HomologsYes
Number of Divisions2
Number of Daughter Cells 4 Daughter cells
Chromosome NumberReduced by half.
Steps(Meiosis 1) Prophase I, Metaphase I, Anaphase I, Telophase I; (Meiosis 2) Prophase II, Metaphase II, Anaphase II and Telophase II.
A process of asexual reproduction in which the cell divides in two producing a copy, with the same number of chromosomes in each resulting diploid cell.
