What are the differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration? Name some organisms that use the anaerobic mode of respiration.
|Aerobic respiration||Anaerobic respiration|
|It occurs in the presence of O2.||It occurs in the absence of O2.|
|It involves the exchange of gases between the organism and the outside environment.||Exchange of gases is absent.|
|It occurs in cytoplasm and mitochondria.||It occurs only in cytoplasm.|
|It always releases CO2 and H2O.||End products vary.|
The organisms that use anaerobic mode of respiration include some bacteria and microorganisms such as yeast.
