What is division of labour? Explain it in contest of multicelluear organisms
In unicellular organisms, the cell is capable of performing the different life processes with the help of the different cellular organelles. The division of labour in multicellular organisms refers to the presence of different organ systems that are incharge of taking care of a particular life process. For example, the respiratory system, helps the body in obtaining oxygen from the air and supplying it to the rest of the body.
@Others: Good work! Keep posting.
We know that there is a division of labour between different organs of our body. For example, the heart pumps blood......Similarly, there is a division of labour between different organelles of a cell too. For example, mitochondria is the power house, lysosomes clean up the cell.............This is called division of labour in cells.
division of labour in multicellular means that as there are many cells present in multicellular organism, each cell is specified for different work. So there is not a burden on a cell to perform all the life activities. different life activities are performed by different cells in multicellular organism.
