How does meiosis 1 differ from meiosis 2?
During meiosis 1, the parent cell with double the normal amount of chromosomes, splits into two diploid cells (have enough chromosomes to survive). During meiosis 2, the two diploid cells each split into two haploid cells (have half the amount of chromosomes to survive). Meiosis ends with four haploid cells.
