In this page you will explore the comparison between plant and animal cell through these printable plant and animal cell diagrams. The most important differences and common structures of plant and animal cell are shown in the diagrams below, which provide a clear illustration of the comparison between these cells. Follow these diagrams to study more about the structures of the cells and we’ll start by giving you the first diagram below.
You can observe in these plant and animal cell diagrams. Both all animals and plants are made of cells and have features in common such as a nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes. Structurally, plant and animal cells are very similar because they are both eukaryotic cells. Plant cells also have a cell wall, and often have chloroplasts and a permanent vacuole. Note that cells may be specialised to carry out a particular function.
Plant cells can be larger than animal cells. The normal range for an animal cell varies from 10 to 30 micrometers while that for a plant cell stretches from 10 to 100 micrometers. Learn and remember the differences to understand these cells’ distinctiveness. Make sure you can also label these unlabeled diagrams of animal and plant cells, like these ones below.
The diagrams are followed by more in-depth information. All pictures presented are the osmosis diagrams that you can easily save and print. Other educational diagram resources are also available in this site. Just browse our category archive or type the key word on the search column!
