why meosis is called a reductional divison
Asked by RAYUDU | 10th Jan, 2018, 09:22: PM
Meiosis is called reduction division because it reduces the number of chromosomes from diploid to haploid i.e it gets reduced from 2N to 1N (46 to 23) so as to maintain the species-specific number 46 chromosomes (23 pairs) from generation to generation.
