What are the differences between plant cell and animal cell?
|PLANT CELLS||ANIMAL CELLS|
|Plant cells possess cell wall.||Animal cells do not possess cell wall.|
|Chloroplasts are present in plant cells.||Animal cells do not possess chloroplasts.|
|Plant cells are almost rectangular in shape.||Animal cells are round in shape.|
|Plant cells possess large vacuoles.||Animal cells have many small vacuoles.|
|Cilia rarely occur in plant cells.||Cilia are present in animal cells.|
|Higher plants do not possess centrioles.||Animal cells do contain centrioles.|
|Plant cells have no or less number of lysosomes.||Animal cells possess many number of vacuoles.|
Plant cell is surrounded by rigid cell wall whereas animal cells do not have cell wall. Presence of large vacoule in plant cell, which is small in animal cell. Plant cells are larger than animal cell. Plant cells have plastids whereas animal cells do not have plastids. Centrosomes are absent in plant cell whereas animal cell have centrosomes. Plant cells are without cilia whereas animal cells are with cilia. Lysosomes are very rare in plant cells. But animal cells have lysosomes.
