Sex cells. Those are sperm cells in males and egg cells in females.


Meiosis is the process of cells splitting into four haploid cells, thus reducing the chromosome number by half in each cell. They also give rise to gametes in the human body, but plant spores in plants.

Meiosis occurs in the sex cells, so the sperm and egg cells in the human body, to create even more of themselves.
