Types of respiration:
Differences between Aerobic and Anaerobic Respiration
|Aerobic Respiration||Anaerobic Respiration|
|Aerobic respiration takes place in the presence of oxygen.||Anaerobic respiration takes place in the absence of oxygen.|
|Complete breakdown of food occurs in aerobic respiration.||Partial breakdown of food occurs in anaerobic respiration.|
|The end products in aerobic respiration are carbon dioxide and water.||The end products in anaerobic respiration maybe ethanol and carbon dioxide (as in yeast plants), or lactic acid (as in animal muscles).|
|Aerobic respiration produces a considerable amount of energy.||Much less energy is produced in anaerobic respiration.|
