A Closer Look: Compare the Components of Plant and Animal Cells
The accompanying graphic illustrates at a glance the structures that are common to both animal and plant cells, as well as the structures that are unique to each. Structures that are common to both plant and animal cells are labeled between the cells; structures that are unique to plants are labeled on the left of the cells and those unique to animals are labeled on the right. Click on any of the labels for more information about a particular structure. Clicking on a label loads a new page with a graphic of that structure and the specific text relating to that graphic.
