    Im pretty sure that a plant would not need a mitochondria because it has chloroplast to make its food but for the human the mitochondria works to provide energy for the cell

    Ok, So first of all what is mitochondria? It's basically a cellular organelle responsible for energy production in the forms of ATP. Both plants and animals have it and they need it. I agree that plants produce energy from sunlight but that is stored in the form of glucose. Plants still need mitochondria to convert that glucose into ATP when energy is needed....

    Red blood cell carries glucose in our body to different cells. It's mitochondria which takes up that glucose and breaks it into energy in the form of ATP

    Ayleen, ATP = Adenosine triphosphate molecules. these are simply enrgy currency of our body.....If you are not sure about it just remember that ATP is equivalent to energy

    Good, so we just saw what is the role of Mitochondria. We know now that is is basically power house of a cell. Now let's see how it evolved.... There are some explanations about it but the most widely accepted one is the `Endosymbiotic theory` . According to it mitochondria was once a prokaryortic bacteria which some how entered in our cells and established an endosymbiotic relationship i.e. basically give and take kind of relationship....

    Now what are the evidences which support this theory??? You can't just believe what I say ..Can yo ...?? When further investigations wr done...scientists found that the genetic material found inside the mitochondria is very similar to prokaryotic bacteria. This is a strong eveidence which supports our hypothesis.
