My question is about meiosis, well its not really a question I wanted to know if I was going in the right direction. On my assignment it asked what would happen if meiosis did not occur?

If meiosis did not occur the number of choromosomes would continue to accumilate result it to be too much for the speices to handle.

    Yes, they would accumulate. Do you think the species would still be viable?

  • Biology -

    I don't think so because the cells would only consist of chromosomes.
