Respiration between plants and animals are very similar except for the fact that plants perform photosynthesis which is the different function that plants and animals perform. Plant cells have more features in the cells causing the plants to only use photosynthesis because they have chloroplast.
Respiration is the process in which the stomata in the leaves consume oxygen and releases carbon dioxide and water.
Photosynthesis is the process of the use of energy from sunlight to produce sugar and create their food to build storage for the food.
During photosynthesis the chlorophyll in the leaves captures the light energy and uses it to produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and oxygen producing oxygen which is released from the tiny openings in the leaves called stomata’s that’s found on the underside of the leaves.
Air containing carbon dioxide enters through the stomata’s pores where it is used during photosynthesis and respiration.
It is very important to understand that both plants and animals need oxygen for respiration. Since respiration is the burning of sugars for energy to grow and do the internal work of living. It is very important to understand that both plants and animals need oxygen for respiration. For respiration the stomata is used to consume oxygen and release carbon dioxide. Energy is released and water and carbon dioxide is produced from the burning of carbohydrates.
