A monoploid organism is an organism that has only a single set of chromosomes.  Monoploids are usually sterile organisms as meiosis can not take place due to the fact that meiosis occurs only in diploid organisms where all chromosomes have a pairing partner.  Monoploid organisms tend to be rare but have an important role in plant breeding[1].
