All living organisms except some bacteria and yeast undergo cellular respiration.


Green plants that produce sugars using photosynthesis use that sugar to produce energy using cellular respiration.

Animals that are consumers get sugars and proteins from plants either directly and or indirectly. The energy molecules obtained from plants are "burned" oxidized in cellular respiration to produce energy in the form of ATP.

anaerobic respiration also known as fermentation takes place in some forms of bacteria and yeast. Fermentation is one of the steps in cellular respiration. Complete cellular respiration requires Oxygen for 90% of the energy produced in cellular respiration.
These organisms that do no use cellular respiration are limited in their energy production.
