Living tissues are groups of similar cells that work together to perform a specific function. The formation of tissues can occur In animal and plant cells. Similarly, different types of tissues are present in the human body, such as the epithelial, connective, muscular and nervous tissues.Continue Reading
Each tissue type has a specific function. For example, epithelial tissue covers the body's surface. There are different types of epithelial tissue, including columnar and cuboidal.
While muscular tissue is necessary for the movement of different body parts, connective tissue helps to anchor these body parts. Similar to epithelial tissue, there are different kinds of both muscle and connective tissues, such as smooth and skeletal muscles, and cartilage and blood tissues. Nervous tissue is a specialized type of tissue that reacts to different stimuli, and can conduct impulses to body organs.Learn more about Cells
A group of cells working together to do a job is called tissue. There are several different types of tissue found in the human body, all of which perform different functions.Full Answer >
Cnidarians have groups of similar cells that work together as tissues, while sponges have no tissues, only disconnected regions of specialized cells. Each group has a type of cell unique to their group: Sponges have collar cells, and cnidarians have nematocysts. No sponges are capable of movement as adults, while some cnidarians move as adults.Full Answer >
Single-celled organisms are organized using specialized cell organelles, while several cells may organize into larger structures, such as tissues and organs. The single-celled organism has all it needs to live independently. Cells organized into more complex structures work together to perform a common function.Full Answer >
The five levels of organization in a multicellular organism are cells, tissues, organs, organ systems and organisms. The level of complexity and functionality increases going from cells to organisms.Full Answer >
