What do plants need to under go respiration?
To carry out respiration plants need the same things as you
To carry out aerobic respiration they need a food source eg
glucose, and oxygen:
glucose + oxygen ----> water + carbon dioxide + ENERGY
To carry out anaerobic respiration they ony need a source of
glucose ----> carbon dioxide + ethanol (alcohol) + ENERGY
It is important to realise that plants Cary out respiration all
of the time, just as your cells do. Also, remember that respiration
is the release of energy from food, not breathing.
