Where in the body does respiration take place?
From my physiology class...if you mean the gas exchange (CO2-O2), it occurs at the alveoli level. These are part of the bronchioles which are branches of the bronchi which are branches of the trachea. Alveolis are located within the lungs. Breathing takes place in many areas. All of the areas of entry where oxygen enters the body is involved such as the mouth and nasal passages, the trachea, the bronchi, the lungs, even the blood stream because that is where the actual exchange of these gases occur.

It takes place in the mitochandria
Most of cellular respiration occurs within the mitochondria of the cell. Glycolysis occurs outside of the mitochondria, while the Krebs Cycle and ETC takes place inside the mi…tochondria.
For respiration - the taking in of oxygen and removal of carbon dioxide - the gases simply diffuse through the whole of amoeba's permeable surface. Soluble nitrogen-containing… wastes, produced by the amoeba's chemical activities are excreted in the same way. As you may know, the amoeba has no special respiratory organs and no respiratory pigments, but there is a free exchange of gases by diffusion or osmosis through the general body surface (plasmalemma), which is permeable to the gases dissolved in water.
Aerobic respiration occurs initially in the cytoplasm, until the two pyruvates are formed and then enters the mitochondria where the rest of the respiration occurs.
Cellular respiration occurs in three main steps. The first step takes place in the cytoplasm of the cell. The last two steps take place in the mitochondria(or if cellular resp…iration is taking place inside of a plant then the last two steps would take place in the chloroplasts) of the cell. Specifically, the second step occurs in the matrix of the mitochondria and the last step occurs along the inner membrane of the mitochondria, or the cristae.
Photosynthesis takes place in the chlorophyll which is in the leaf while cell respiration takes place in the mitochondria of a cell.

Respiration in Plants Respiration is always occurring in plants; that is to say, plants are continuously taking in oxygen and giving off carbon dioxide and water in the mitoch…ondria. Photosynthesis only occurs during daylight,* in addition to respiration. * Although the light reactions of photosynthesis can only occur during the day, the dark reactions of photosynthesis in CAM plants occur during the night.
