Anaerobic respiration is respiration without the use of oxygen. It starts with glycolysis, but it doesnt involve the link reaction, the Krebs cycle or oxidative phosphorylation. There are 2 types of anaerobic respiration;

  • LACTATE FERMENTATION
  • ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION

These two processes are similar because they both take place in the cytoplasm, they both produce two ATP per molecule of glucose and they both start with glycolysis (which produces pyruvate). They differ in which organisms they occur in and what happens
