  • A nuclear envelope forms around each set of chromosomes.
  • Cytokinesis takes place, producing four daughter cells (gametes, in animals), each with a haploid set of chromosomes.
  • Because of crossing-over, some chromosomes are seen to have recombined segments of the original parental chromosomes.
