Explain why meiosis and gametogenesis are always interlinked?

Answer :

Meiosis is also known as reduction division as the amount of genetic material is reduced to half in this division. Formation of gametes involves meiosis as gametes produced by organisms are haploid i.e. having only one set of chromosomes, and formation of gametes is called gametogenesis. Therefore, meiosis and gametogenesis are always interlinked.
