What is the difference between respiration in plants and respiration in animals?
|RESPIRATION IN PLANTS||RESPIRATION IN ANIMALS|
|1. Do not exhibit external ventilation or breathing movements||1. Exhibit external ventilation or breathing movements|
|2. There is no gaseous transport involved during respiration. The respiratory gases simply diffuse in and out of the cell||2. The tissue fluid blood is responsible for the transport of gases|
|3. Oxygen released during the process of photosynthesis acts as an additional source of oxygen for respiration||3. Air is the only source of oxygen|
|4. The end product of anaerobic respiration is ethanol||4. The end product of anaerobic respiration is lactic acid|
|5. Produces a small amount of heat||5. A larger quantity of heat is released|
|6. Rate of respiration is slow||6. Rate of respiration is comparatively faster|
