How does cellular respiration take place in plants?

1 Answer

Similar to animals.


  1. The cellular respiration is similar in plants and animals. The site of this cellular respiration is mitochondria. Glycolysis, Krebs Cycle, ETS are found in all the cases, where cellular respiration is performed.
  2. But the mechanisms of exchange of gases are different in plants and animals. The animals have well-defined mechanisms of breathing, while in case of plants the respiratory gases are simply exchanged through stomata, lenticells, cuticle etc. Thank you
