Difference Between Apoplast and Symplast

Difference Between Apoplast and Symplast

Apoplast vs Symplast   The difference between apoplast and symplast is that apoplast and symplast in plants make two different pathways to pass water and ions from root hair through root cortex to xylem elements. These pathways may occur either separately or simultaneously, and have different transport rates. The concept of these two paths was first presented […]

Difference Between Simple and Complex Tissue

Difference Between Simple and Complex Tissue

Simple vs Complex Tissue   The difference between simple and complex tissue appears in areas such as composition, functions, etc. In plants, there are two types of tissues; meristematic tissue and permanent tissue.

Difference Between Budding and Grafting

Difference Between Budding and Grafting

Budding vs Grafting   The different techniques followed in grafting and budding signifies the difference between them. Grafting and budding are two horticultural techniques that are used to produce new plants by means of asexual propagation. Both these techniques can be described under the method known as graftage, which is joining of a scion (shoot […]

Difference Between Acid Fast and Non Acid Fast Bacteria

Acid Fast vs Non Acid Fast Bacteria

Acid Fast vs Non Acid Fast Bacteria   The difference between acid fast and non acid fast bacteria is in their cell wall, basically. Bacteria are generally identified and observed with differential staining procedures. Acid fast staining is one of such methods to distinguish a certain type of bacteria from others. This method was first […]

Difference Between Epidermis and Gastrodermis

Difference Between Epidermis and Gastrodermis

Epidermis vs Gastrodermis   The difference between epidermis and gastrodermis can be discussed under different aspects starting from their location. Epidermis and gastrodermis are two tissue layers found in cnidarians. Since cnidarians are the simplest animals that lack any organ level organization, the epidermis and gastrodermis have a single layer of cells. Cells are differentiated […]

Difference Between Heredity and Variation

Difference Between Heredity and Variation

Heredity vs Variation   Heredity and variation are two closely related terms in genetics though, there is a subtle difference between heredity and variation, which has to be understood carefully. Heredity is the passing of characters of parents to their offspring. A progeny can inherit characters either by sexual or asexual reproduction. On the other hand, variation is […]

Difference Between Sponges and Cnidarians

Difference Between Sponges and Cnidarians

Sponges vs Cnidarians   One interesting difference between sponges and cnidarians is that sponges lack tissue while cnidarians have tissues but not the organ systems. Sponges and Cnidarians are very primitive acoelomic invertebrates with very simple body structures. Both organisms are found in aquatic ecosystems. Sponges and Cnidarians have no organ systems. In this article, […]
