Respiration in animal

Every living organism take breathing that means take air from the nose and exit it out through the nose. Respiration can be termed as gaseous exchange, basically two types of gases are exchanged such as Oxygen and Carbon dioxide. If person is breathing that means 2 basic processes are carried out. 1.) Inhalation : Inhalation […]

Respiration in plants

Respiration in plants is opposite of photosynthesis. Respiration is important in plants, for plant growth and development. Respiration can be defined as breakdown of complex molecules and oxygen to generate carbon dioxide. It is a catabolic process in which complex compounds are broken down due to breaking of C-C bond and hence energy releases called […]

Humans Nutrition

Human nutrition All the humans intake variety of food, according to their habitat, taste and health. To digest this food humans have digestive system, this digestive system helps to digest, absorb the food and excrete undigested food material. To perform these functions, digestive system contains two main parts : 1.) Digestive tract 2.) Digestive glands […]

Animals Nutrition

As we discussed in heterotrophic mode of nutrition, all the animals depend on another animal to get their food. Categories of animals like herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. Nutrition in animals is classified into 3 types based on what they eat. 1.) Saprophytic nutrition :Saprophytic mode of nutrition can be termed as the living organisms which […]

Plants Nutrition

As we discussed earlier, plants get their food with the help of photosynthesis. By consuming solar or light energy, they can synthesize nutrients from breakdown of CO2 and H2O. For photosynthesis, both light reaction and dark reaction performed by plants. Light reactions are those reactions, that are carried out in presence of light and those […]

Heterotrophic nutrition

Heterotrophic nutrition is the second type of nutrition in which one organism depends on another organism for nutrition or for getting the food material. These organisms do not prepare their own food material instead depend on another. Some organisms eat plants, some will get animals parts or many of the organisms that can eat both. […]

Autotrophic nutrition

Autotrophic nutrition can be defined as preparation of own food material with the help of sunlight. The living organisms which are preparing their own food are called autotrophic organisms. Best example of autotrophic organisms are Plants. Plants have ability to produce their own food material with the help of sunlight and this process is called […]

Modes of nutrition

As we discussed previously about nutrition and nutrients. Now let’s move to the modes of nutrition. We know every organism intake different food material according to their habitat ( place of living), skeletal form and they have different digestive mechanism. Therefore every living organisms consume different types of food material. Basically, modes of nutrition is […]

Nutrition

How do you differentiate between living and non living things? The answer is as simple, that those organisms who have ability to grow, reproduce, create energy that means metabolism such organisms are called living organisms. The organisms which don’t have ability to grow, reproduce, metabolize are called non living organisms. From this concept, we came […]
