Note on Exchange of Gases in Terrestrial Animals
Insects and other land arthropods use tracheal tubes for exchange of gases. This is very simple and effective method. These animals have network of tracheal tubes. These tubes on reaching near the cells divide into very minute tubes called tracheoles. A fluid is present in these tracheoles. The diameter of these tubes is less than one micrometer. Air enters into the tracheal tubes directly then oxygen diffuses in fluid present in tracheoles. The Co2 produced diffuses out in fluid and passed out alongwith out going air.
In large land animals exchange of gases takes place through lungs.
In some invertebrates lungs are also present but in them there is no proper ventilating mechanism.
In amphibians simple and sac like lungs are found. The air is forced into the lungs through buccal cavity by the pumping action.
In Other Vertebrates:
The lungs in reptiles, birds and mammals have become more efficient. In them the respiratory system consists of alveoli. Birds have air sacs in addition to lungs.

For those who do not want to spend five or six years of their life, for textbooks, mastering theoretical training, access to some professional spheres will simply be closed.

Without the necessary knowledge it is difficult to become, for example, an architect or a biophysicist, to obtain the profession of an engineer or diplomat. Career . If you perform a comparative analysis of a certain number of large companies, you can see that middle managers, let alone top managers, have one, and often several higher educations in different spheres. And this is done not for prestige, but for gaining knowledge, which is simply necessary for the competent management of business in a highly competitive environment.
