Difference Between Unicellular And Multicellular Organisms

A
  1. Difference in the complexity of unicellular and multicellular organisms.

  2. Unicellular organisms lack specialized cells, while the cells of multicellular organisms can specialize and function independently

  3. Unicellular organisms can survive independently when removed from colonies. Due to their complexity and specialization of cells, multicellular organisms cannot exist independently when separated from the whole organism.

  4. Unicellular organisms lack well-defined mitochondria, so their diet is limited. Multicellular organisms have well-defined mitochondria, so their diet is versatile.

  5. While unicellular organisms consist of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, multicellular organisms only consist of eukaryotic organisms.
