Need for a Transport System

 Animals need to take in food and oxygen from the external environment. Plants need to take in the raw materials necessary to carry out the photosynthesis, as well as , mineral nutrients and oxygen front hr external environment. Both animals and plants have to vet rid of waste products from their bodies to the exterior.

The Amoeba, however, can only do this up yo a certain body size. Beyond this size, its external body surface cannot cope with its material exchange requirements. when this happens, the Amoeba stops growing and divides into two.
