In animals, meiosis of germ cells produces gametes. Some plant cells also undergo meiosis, but the resulting cells are not gametes. Explain what the products of plant meiosis are, what they develop into, and how plants produce gametes.

Summary Introduction

To explain: The products of the plant meiosis, their developmental fate, and how they produce the gametes.

Introduction: All living beings including the animals and plants have life cycles. Growth and reproduction are the two important components of their life cycles. Alternating the meiosis with the fertilization is a characteristic of both animals and plants. Animals form the male and female gametes undergo fertilization. In plants, there is an alternation of generations between the sporophyte (produces spores) and the gametophyte (produces sex cells).

Explanation of Solution

Both plants and animals undergo sexual reproduction, that is, the offspring are produced by the union of sex cells. They both form the haploid gametes through meiosis. However, in plants, there is an alternation of the haploid and diploid generations. The plants have haplodiplontic life cycle...
