Question and answer
Because photosynthesis only occurs in plants, why is it essential to animal life?
According to the biophysicist Alfred Lotka's principles of thermodynamics, the energy retained by a primary producer is transferred to the herbivore that consumes it. [ Similarly, when a carnivore consumes an herbivore the energy of the herbivore, to which the primary producer contributed, is transferred to the carnivore. This process of energy transfer is called the food chain and describes the
transfer of energy through an ecosystem. Because energy begins with primary producers, all organisms in an ecosystem indirectly rely on photosynthesis. Read more: Why Is Photosynthesis Important for All Organisms? | ]

define and explain the differences between intrinsic factors and extrinsic factors and how they affect motivation.
Weegy: There are many theories about what motivates people. In actuality, you are motivated by both internal and external factors, as there are always a mixture of reasons why you do, achieve, behave, learn and react. [ Personality and self-concept often determine whether or not you will be intrinsically or extrinsically motivated. If you understand the distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic motivational factors, you have a greater probability of motivating yourself or others. Every behavior has a underlying cause, and understanding the cause of behavior and motivating factors is key to changing or improving outcomes. Read more: ] (More)

what type of cells and organisms undergo mitosis and meiosis?
Weegy: Meiosis is found to occur in humans, animals and plants while mitosis is found in single-cell species as well. Both Meiosis and Mitosis are found in complex organisms which reproduce sexually. [ [ Mitosis may be used for human growth, the replenishment of depleted organs and tissues, healing, and sustenance of the body. Identical versions of cells can be created to form tissues through Mitosis. Meiosis is a special process reserved for the creation of the egg and sperm cells. The same patterns may be found in many species of plant and animal cell reproduction. ] ] (More)
