recombination occurs between the genes on the sister chromatids of homologous pairs.
One duplication of chromosomes followed by two subsequent reduction divisions occurs
only in meiosis
Why do homologous chromosomes pairs in prophase I and not in prophase II
The cells are haploid during prophase II and therefore can't pair.
An error in meiosis that results in an abnormal number of chromosomes in the final haploid cell
~can result from the failure of chromosomes to move to opposite poles during meiosos I and II
~is a condition called aneuploidy
~can result form nondisjunction
True or False: Meiosis involves two nuclear divisions without having DNA replication occurring between meiosis I and II
