Disadvantages to multicellularity

Definition

Meristems

In plants, cell differentiation derives from the meristem tissue.
Meristems are unspecialized cells located at the tips of shoots and roots.
Organs such as flowers and leaves develop from the shoot apical meristems

3

Advantages of Multicellularity

  • It is more energy efficient as they are not wasting energy carrying out all the functions necessary for life.
  • Longer lifespans as they are energy efficient.
  • Sexual reproduction and genetic recombination leads to increasing

4

Disadvantages to multicellularity

  • More cells means more energy required for survival.
  • Cells cannot function independently.
  • More energy required for reproduction.
  • Take longer to evolve and adapt to long term changes in their
