all living things respire. Do all living things breathe? Describe how they obtain their oxygen.
yes..all living things breathe..
Respiration is the process of breathing in and out. Living things take oxygen into the body as they breathe in and release carbon dioxide as they breathe out. The oxygen that enters the body during respiration helps the body to create energy from the food consumed. Some animals have special organs that help them in the process of respiration.
For example, the gills of fish help them to absorb oxygen dissolved in water. Earthworms breathe through their skin. Plants have tiny pores on the leaves that help them to breathe.
Plants respire day and night, but breathe out oxygen during the day. Plants release more oxygen while producing their food than they release during respiration.
if that was not helpful check this out :
- Where do living things get oxygen from? From plants, grass, and tree. Plants trees give out oxygen into the air. Animals breath in the oxygen.
- What do all living things need oxygen for? Animals require oxygen directly for respiration, to convert fuels in their bodies into energy via a reaction which involves oxygen.Plants and other lifeforms require oxygen indirectly as a component...
- Why do most living things need oxygen? Because Oxygen releases energy stored in the foods that carbon based life requires to survive.
