Plants - cell wall forms.
Animals - cleavage furrow forms.


Cytokinesis occurs in mitosis and meiosis for both plant and animal cells. The ultimate objective is to divide the parent cell into daughter cells.

In plants , this occurs when a cell wall forms in between the daughter cells.



In animals , this occurs when a cleavage furrow forms. This pinches the cell in half.
