What are the different tissues in animals.
The different tissues in animals are:
(i) Epithelial Tissues - These are the protective tissues of the animal body. Depending upon the shape and function of the cells, the epithelial tissues are classified as follows:
a. Squamous epithelium.
b. Cuboicial epithelium.
c. Columnar epithelium.
d. Glandular epithelium.
e. Ciliated epithelium.
(ii) Muscular Tissues - The muscular tissues form the contractile tissues and are made up of muscle cells. On the basis of their location, structure and function, there are three types of muscular tissues:
a. Striated muscles.
b. Smooth muscles.
c. Cardiac muscles.
(iii) Connective Tissues - The connective tissues are specialised to connect and anchor various body organs. They are of five types:
a. Aerolar connective tissue.
b. Dense regular connective tissue.
c. Adipose tissues.
d. Skeletal tissues.
e. Fluid connective tissues.
(iv) Nervous Tissues - These tissues are specialised to transmit messages within our body. Brain, spinal cord and nerves are all composed of nervous tissues.
