Plant vs Animal
Plant vs Animal reflects on basic biologic components between plant cells and animal cells. Placing them on a battle field where both, win with their differences, and are brought together in their similarities.
The CELL, from Latin cella, meaning "small room", is the smallest unit of life. The basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organisms. "The building blocks of life".
Plant Cells and Animal Cells belong to the domain Eukarya (from Greek, Eu, "well" or "true", karyon, "nut" or "kernel". Eukarya domain is distinct from Prokarya domain (from Greek Pro "before" kernel) for having “compartments”, membrane-bound organelles where specific activities take place, and most important, they have a cell nucleus, where the DNA is stored.
Plant Cells and Animal Cells both have membrane, nucleus and other organelles. Yet, Plant Cells can be distinguished by Animal Cells for having cell walls (giving it a block shape), chloroplasts (where photosynthesis takes place) and a big vacuole. Animal Cells have a blob-shape (due to absence of a cell wall), a bigger nucleus, smaller vacuoles or none, and centrioles.
So different from one another, yet so close to each other.
