 What is the difference between the manner in which movement takes place in a sensitive plant and the movement in our legs?

Hi Harshita,

Movements in sensitive plants

1. The movement is response to stimulus (involuntary action).

2. Plant cells do not have specialised protein for movements.

Movement in legs

1. It is a voluntary action.

2. Animal cells have specialised protein which help muscles to contract.
