Internal or Cellular respiration

Diffusion of oxygen into the cells and the diffusion of carbon dioxide out of the cells.

Characteristics of respiratory structures
The respiratory surface is moist.  Cells lining the respiratory surface is thin.  The respiratory structure has a large surface area.

Respiratory structures of Amoeba sp. (small organisms)
Have a large surface area compared to the volume of their body.  Ensures that the plasma membrane is constantly moist.  Moist plasma membrane – respiratory gases can dissolve easily.  Thin plasma membrane – allows for rapid diffusion of gases.
