Meiosis is basically the cell division process which helps to make gametes [sex cells] from ordiinary 46-chromosome cells.  It is the process that is vital in sexual reproduction. If it didn't exist, we wouldn't be here.  The animals wouldn't be here.

Basic Facts about Meiosis
*Meiosis only occurs in the sexual organs of an organisms
*It results of making sex cells called gametes
*Four daughter cells are produced
*Each of the cells produced are entirely unique and have a different genetic make up
*This increases the genetic variation and improves a species survival
*Each cell produced from this cell division would have half the set of chromosomes of their parents (eg.  a human has 46 chromosomes in a cell so the daughter cells from meiosis would count up 23 chromosomes
