This title explains what happens when cells divide. Cell division is the way in which organisms grow. Even when an organism is fully grown, some cells continue to divide to replace those that have become old or damaged. This book explores the complex relationship among chromosomes, genes, and DNA. It then examines the special form of cell division involved in reproduction, and how characteristics are passed on from one generation to another so that a pig gives birth to piglets and not kittens!
