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
ANAEROBIC respiration TAKES PLACE at two places one in muscle cell producing lactic acid and one in large intestine of undigested food from small intestine producing certain v…itamins also
\ni don't know! i need to find it out for a school project! someone PLEASE answer this question for me and this other person. PLEASE!
Photosynthesis takes place in the chlorophyll which is in the leaf while cell respiration takes place in the mitochondria of a cell.
the respiratory and circulatory system
it take place in your lung and when you breath..
Respiration takes place by nasal passage go to lungs to purifi.
Respiration is a chemical process that breaks down nutrient molecules (mainly glucose) in every cell in the body to release energy. Breathing is NOT respiration! Breathing is… also called ventilation, but while breathing is the inhaling and exhalation of air, respiration is the chemical process in the cells.
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.
red blood cells
In the absence of respiration cells wiil survive because of fermentation and they will get energy from it.
Hello everybody! Boys and girls! Ladies and rental men! I am soup song, flop and sing song group tonight:) :D :) :d=D
Of course respiration takes place when you are sleeping! You have to breath to live. So unless you are a zombie then yes respiration occurs when you are sleeping as well as wh…en you are awake.
Within the mitochondria.
