  • Anaerobic respiration; when the food is oxidized without using molecular oxygen it is called anaerobic respiration.

  • Types of aerobic respiration: It is of two main types

  • Direct respiration in this type exchange of gases is through body cells directly and blood is not used. It is found in aerobic bacteria, protists, plants, sponges, flatworms, round worms, coelenterates and many arthropods.

  • Indirect respiration in this type of respiration exchange of gases takes place through special respiratory organs like skin, gills, buccopharyngeal cavity and lungs. Thus it is of following types
