Each living cell is located close to the surface of a plant. So the distances that the gases must diffuse are not great . plz explain this !!

Dear Student,

As there are no specialised organs for respiration in plants. Each living cell in the plant is located close to the surface, So the distance that gases must diffuse in even a large plant is not great. The gaseous exchange can simply take place by diffusion.

Hope this answers your query.

Cheers !!
