Megasporogenesis -

The process of formation of megaspores from the megaspore mother cell is called megasporogenesis. 
Ovules generally differentiate a single megaspore mother cell (MMC) in the micropylar region of the nucellus. It is a large cell containing dense cytoplasm and a prominent nucleus. 

- wherein

Meiosis results in the production of four megaspores .

 

 

Microsporongenesis -

As the anther develops, the cells of the sporogenous tissue undergo meiotic divisions to form microspore tetrads. As each cell of the sprorogenous tissue is capable of giving rise to a microspore tetrad. Each one is a potential pollen or microspore mother cell.

- wherein

The process of formation of microspores from a pollen mother cell (PMC) through meiosis is called microsporogenesis.
