Give the differences and similarities betweem coordination in animals and coordination in plants.

Differences between co-ordination in plants and co-ordination in animals
 Co-ordination in Animals Co-ordination in Plants
1 In animals control and co-ordination is done by nervous system and endocrine system.
2 In animals nervous system is well developed and consists of brain, spinal cord and nerves.
3 In animals hormones are secreted by endocrine glands.
4 Animals secrete hormones such as Growth hormone, Adrenaline, Thyroxine, Testosterone, Estrogens.
1 In plants control and co-ordination is done by chemical substances called plant hormones or phytohormones.
2 Plants do not have nervous system.
3 Plants lack glands that produce and secrete hormones. Instead each plant cell produces hormones.
4 Plants secrete hormones such as Auxin, Gibberlins, Cytokinins, Absicisic acid, Ethylene.
