i have read everything on your website about meiosis. i have tried in encycolpaedias and in books, everywhere and i still dont understand about meiosis. i do understand that it is a form of cell division occuring in the reproductive organs and that it the 2 divisions. what i dont understand is how do gametes end up with only 23 chromosomes while all other cells in the body duplicate exactly......i know you may not answer this question, but i am begging you!!! im really really stuck. im normally a very capable student but meiosis just doesn't sink in. PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!! thanx in advance
