    1) In regards to number one, both plant and animal cells complete the same stages of cell division: interphase, mitosis (prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase), and cytokinesis. The main difference between plants and animals is during cytokinesis, since plant cells have rigid cell walls, absent in ...
