What is cell division?is it continuous

Dear Student,

 The  cell is the basic unit of life. When a cell reaches maturity, it divides to give rise to new cells of the same type. This process by which a cell divides to give rise to new cells is known as cell division.

There are two major types of cell divisions viz
1) Mitosis (equational division) - It occurs in somatic cells
 2) Meiosis (reductional division) - It occurs in reproducing/gametic cells

Yes, cell division is a life time or continuous process. It occurs every time as and when require like during damaged skin cells etc.
