- Multicellular organisms are organisms that consist of multiple cells (more than one cell).
- Multicellular organisms are more complex than unicellular organisms and hence need many different types of cell to carry out their life processes.
- This can be achieved through cell specialisation and cell organisation.
- Examples of multicellular organisms are hydra, spirogyra, weeds, flowering plants, vertebrate and invertebrate animals.
