4 TELOPHASE I The nuclear membranes reform, and the number of chromosomes enclosed in each has been reduced by half. 5 PROPHASE II The division of the new daughter cells begins: the chromatids condense; the nuclear membranes disintegrate; and the spindles form. B MEIOSIS II In the second division, the two chromatids that form each chromosome from meiosis I are separated. , 23 chromosomes each (haploid cells). Each chromosome will be composed of a chromatid. 6 METAPHASE II continues in the daughter cells.

Uniformity Mendel's first law, or principle, about heredity proposes that by crossing two homozygous parents (P), dominant and recessive for the same trait, its descendant, or filial 1 (F1), will be uniform. That is, all those F1 individuals will be identical for the homozygous dominant trait. In this example using the trait seed color, yellow is dominant and green is recessive. Thus, the F1 generation will be yellow. The first law, known as the law of segregation, comes from the results obtained with the crosses made with F1 individuals.
