Meiosis Quizzes & Trivia

Meiosis is the term given to any cell division that results in four daughter cells being produced with exactly half the number of chromosomes as the parent cell. This is evident in such productions as gametes and plant spores. What do you know about it? Take the AP Ch 10 Meiosis Outline Quiz!
