Plant and Animal Cell Diagram

The animal and plant cells are both eukaryotic cells. The structures are complex and they have differences with them that is major. Often times people just don’t understand how different these cells are from each other and get them confused because of not understanding them.

Plant cells have cell walls that rigid while animal cells do not. With the animal cells not having rigid walls they can form and adopt into a variety of shapes. The phagocytic cell that comes from the animal cell can absorb from the structures and the plant cells don’t have this type of ability. The plant cells come with chloroplasts that helps because they need utilization with the sunlight. The green color that the plant cells have comes from this. Photosynthesis is a function in the plant cells but the animal cells don’t have them.

Plant cells unlike animal cells are classified within three types. What helps with the storage is called the parenchyma cells. The cells that are present when the maturity is going on and with having only one wall that is primary is known as the collenchyma cells. The cells that help with the support that is mechanical is known as the sclerenchyma cells.

Animal cells have something really remarkable with them in the fact that when sugar tries to enter the cells they can back down and turn it into carbon dioxide. When that happens then they have just created energy and plant cells are not able to do this.

These are just some of the differences between them but as you can see they are huge differences and the cells are all unique but there for a purpose because the animals and plants need them in order to survive and work the way that they are intended to be working.
