Plant and Animal Nutrition

Nutrition in plants and animals is the act of providing nutrients to their body cells to perform daily activities and are required to keep them alive. Food is the basic thing for survival of both plants and animals. Plants are autotrophs so; Plant nutrition is basically depends on the types of nutrients the plant gets from the soil and energy intake through photosynthesis. Plants usually take nutrition in the form of inorganic forms. Plants usually convert carbon dioxide in to glucose water and oxygen. On the other side animals are heterotrophs which say they can’t produce food on their own and have to depend on plants or other animals. Animal nutrients are highly focused on their dietary requirements for the growth and maintenance.
