 #                     Feature                     Mitosis Meiosis      Both
 1.   Maintains diploid number of chromosomes
 2.   Involves crossing over
 3.   Chromosomes shorten and become visible
 4.   Produces four cells when completed
 5.   Involves only one division
 6.   Reduces chromosome number
 7.   Produces genetically identical cells
 8.   Forms mature gametes
 9.   Produces cells with new chromosome
      combinations
10.   Occurs in animal cells
11.   Occurs in plant cells
12.   Forms skin cells
13.   Involves chromosome movement
14.   Goes through two divisions
15.   Produces haploid number
16.   Involves changes within the nucleus
17.   Produces two cells when complete
18.   Cell membrane pinches in
