Why is cell known as autonomous unit of life?
The cell is known as the autonomous unit of life because it can independently carry out all the life activities necessary for its own survival. A cell has absolute independent existence. It does not depend upon any other cell for any function, material or information. Each cell can obtain its own food, can respire, synthesise macromolecules, discard its waste, undergo division and maintain homeostasis.
