MicrosporogenesisMegasporogenesis
It is the process of the formation of microspore tetrads from a microspore mother cell through meiosis. It is the process of the formation of the four megaspores from a megaspore mother cell in the region of the nucellus through meiosis 
It occurs inside the pollen sac of the anther. It occurs inside the ovule. 

Both events (microsporogenesis and megasporogenesis) involve the process of meiosis or reduction division which results in the formation of haploid gametes from the microspore and megaspore mother cells.

Microsporogenesis results in the formation of haploid microspores from a diploid microspore mother cell. On the other hand, megasporogenesis results in the formation of haploid megaspores from a diploid megaspore mother cell.
