Anaerobic respiration in its simplest form is respiration WITHOUT oxygen.
Aerobic respiration then being respiration WITH oxygen

So where the equation for aerobic respiration would be

Glucose + Oxygen —-> Carbon dioxide + water + (ATP (energy))

The equation for ANaerobic respiration is

Glucose —> Lactic acid + (less ATP)

One examples of where humans use anaerobic respiration is when running for too long to fast. You are not taking in enough oxygen for the amount of energy you are using. Therefore your body uses the quicker solution of anaerobic respiration. It is quicker but less effective as you get less energy. You also build up lactic acid. Lactic acid is stored in your liver. This is what you feel when you have a stitch. Once you slow down and breath in more oxygen the lactic acid goes away.

Fermentation is a special case of anaerobic respiration
When yeast respires anaerobically it produces ethanol (alcohol) instead of lactic acid

Glucose —(yeast)—> ethanol + carbon dioxide


Hope this helps
