Overall eukaryote plant cells, as illustrated on the left, are much more complex than those of the prokaryote shown on the right.

The eukaryote shown is a more contemporary cell with its specific functions being met by more specialize organelles some of which are thought to be derived by including previously freely existing bacteria within their structures, i.e., mitochondria.
