Aerobic and Anaerobic Respiration

For the majority of animals oxygen is essential to
carry out their metabolic processes.
Although for some microorganisms oxygen is a
toxic element.
Where do these organisms live?

All organisms respire because respiration is
esencial to life but in the absence of oxygen the
process is carried out in a different way, even
some of our cells are able to do this process.
