Modes of Nutrition

Plant- Autotrophic (Photosynthesis)


Animal- Heterotrophic

Comparing and Contrasting Transportation

Plants-

  • Absorb nutrients through roots
  • Vascular tissues (xylem) transport nutrients from roots to leaves
  • Phloem transports sugar molecules, amino acids, and hormones
  • Leaves have veins to transport nutrients
  • Root pressure pushes water from roots

Animals-

  • Circulatory system moves blood
  • Respiratory system

Both-

  • Use water as a medium to transport substances
  • Transport vitamins and minerals

Comparing and contrasting Response System

Plant-
  • Transmit information about light intensity
  • "Remember" and "react" to info encrypted in light

Animal-

  • Nervous system

Both-

  • Receive from the external and then react internal



Comparing and Contrasting Reproduction

Plant-

  • Asexual

Animal-

  • Sexual

Both-

  • Similar reproductive organelles
