If we look at diploid meaning: diploids are cells which consist of two sets of chromosomes. Almost all mammals present on the earth have diploid genomes. There are two sets of chromosomes, which means they have a double number of chromosomes present in the haploid cells. In these two sets of chromosomes, one belongs to the father, and the other one belongs to0 the mother. The diploid cells are formed after mitosis and are genetically identical to their parent cells. These cells are present within the somatic cells of vertebrates and are very important cells for the growth and development of these organisms. The life cycle stage of diploid is known as the “sporophytic stage” the diploid stage is not prominent as a haploid stage, but in the cycle of pteridophytes, the diploid stage is more predominant as compared to the haploid stage.
