Respiration

Post by firemama » Sat May 02, 2009 9:31 pm

I'm doing this experiment on comapring respiration in plant and animal cells. How do I get the plant and animal cells or do I just use a regular plant and animal in the experiement?

Generally, you would carry out the experiment on a plant and an animal as all cells respire at the same rate during periods of inactivity.

You can make use of unicellular algae as plant and a unicellular animal like amoeba for your experiments.

From a practicality point of view, you'll want to compare similar biomasses - that will be a bit easier with multicellular specimens.

also not to mention that algae are not plants and amoebas are not animals..
