Plant secondary metabolic pathways involve the combination of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur into different molecules that serve a wide variety of purposes such as herbivore deterrence, tri-trophic signaling, pathogen inhibition, quenching of reactive oxygen species, allelopathic activity, and heat dissipation.
To keep it simple, there are three main metabolic pathways we use to perform physical activity--the phosphagen pathway, the glycolytic pathway, and the oxidative pathway--and one pathway to convert food into energy--the citric acid, or Krebs cycle.
