Original Document: Phases of Meiosis

Name of Phase Description
1. Prophase I Homologous chromosomes pair up and form tetrad
2. Anaphase I Spindle fibers move homologous chromosomes to opposite sides
3. Telophase II Nuclear membrane reforms, cytoplasm divides, 4 daughter cells formed
4. Metaphase II Chromosomes line up along equator, not in homologous pairs
5. Prophase I Crossing-over occurs
6. Anaphase II Chromatids separate
7. Metaphase I Homologs line up alone equator
8. Telophase I Cytoplasm divides, 2 daughter cells are formed
