NCERT Solution: Life Processes

Short Answer Type

Plants have low energy needs as compared to animals. Explain.

Plants remain fixed at a place because they do not need to move in search of food. As a result, plants do not need to have locomotion, the way animals do. Moreover, most of the movements of substances in plants happen through passive transport; which does not need energy. Due to this, the energy requirement in plants is low as compared to animals.
