Term Information [More information on respiratory gaseous exchange]

Accession
GO:0007585
Name
respiratory gaseous exchange
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
breathing, respiration
Definition
The process of gaseous exchange between an organism and its environment. In plants, microorganisms, and many small animals, air or water makes direct contact with the organism's cells or tissue fluids, and the processes of diffusion supply the organism with dioxygen (O2) and remove carbon dioxide (CO2). In larger animals the efficiency of gaseous exchange is improved by specialized respiratory organs, such as lungs and gills, which are ventilated by breathing mechanisms. Source: ISBN:0198506732
