Mitosis is an equational division in which a cell replicates to form two daughter cells with identical sets of chromosomes.
Meiosis is a reduction division in which each daughter cell receives half the amount of DNA as the parent cell. Meiosis occurs during formation of egg and sperm cells in mammals.
Meiosis results in formation of 4 daughter cells.
