Haploid vs diploid: the difference in chromosome number and genetic diversity

A flower, sometimes known as a blossom or bud, is the reproductive structure found in flowering plants.  Flowers produce gametophytes, which in flowering plants consist of a few haploid cells.

In this article, we will delve into the fundamental distinction between haploid and diploid cells and what impact it has on genetic diversity. We will explore the unique characteristics of these two cells, including their number of chromosomes and the role they play in sexual reproduction. We will examine the mechanisms of meiosis and fertilization … Read more
