    What do you need to know for these two. All I currently know is that a tape measure can be used a transect line in two neighbouring habitats. Quadrats then have to be placed at regular intervals along the transect and you can calculate the percentage of distribution in each quadrat or simply count how many there are. This can then be repeated multiple times by placing the transect randomly and then after working out the mean. Anything I missed out?

    You can also use quadrats by themselves by throwing them randomly

    Mitosis= Type of cell devision that is used to: forming replacement cells; during growth and for asexual reproduction. The genetic material (or chromosomes) is copied and the cell divides ONCE to form two genetically identical cells to the original cell. (You don't need to know the stages, just the process of it)

    Meiosis= Type of cell devision that makes gametes. The genetic material is copied and then the cells divides TWICE to form four cells that are not genetically identical. They each contain a single set of chromosomes (half number of chromosomes as the original cell)

    hope it helps!

    Np and yeah the revision guides tend to go in depth and give unnecessary information, just understand the concepts of both and differences.
