Description

Mitosis refers to the process of somatic cell reproduction and is responsible for plant growth.  Mitosis occurs mainly in meristematic regions in plants. The steps of mitosis are prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, and cytokinesis. Mitosis produces two identical diploid cells. Meiosis is the form of cellular reproduction that produces four haploid gamete cells. Meiosis occurs in the reproductive regions of plants. The steps of meiosis are prophase I, metaphase I, anaphase I, telophase I, prophase II, metaphase II, anaphase II, and telophase II.
