RESPIRATION - aerobic respiration and anaerobic respiration in plants, fungi and animals - oxygen debt & build-up of lactic acid

Doc Brown's biology exam revision study notes:  Some of these revision notes on aerobic respiration in animals and plants, anaerobic respiration in animals and yeasts,  including experiment investigations into respiration.

Sub-index for notes on respiration

(1) Metabolism, introduction to respiration, its significance, uses of energy released, aerobic respiration, experiment to measure your pulse rate - a simple measure of your rate of respiration

(2) Aerobic respiration in plants and fungi - experiments

(3) Anaerobic respiration in animals, oxygen debt and cramps

(4) Anaerobic respiration in plants, bacteria and fungi

(5) A quick comparison of aerobic respiration and anaerobic respiration in plants and animals
