    Welcome, tissue hunter! ;)

    You probably came across that page because you need accessible information about tissues. Maybe you already understand them (structure, composition, functions), or maybe it is still problematic for you.
    The way of presentation of each tissue should satisfy you, because I have written the articles in simple words – I have always found biology (not only tissues) difficult, so I would like to understand the articles myself. That is why they have been written in simple words that I use everyday and that are used by most (cultured) young people ;-)

    My comments that consist in associations of tissues with something simpler to imagine, enabled me to remember some technical terms, states or situations. Try to replace them with your most simple associations, then it will be easier for you to understand, remember and recall all that stuff.

    Are you preparing for your matriculation exam? Materials from that page can seem a bit too simple to you. Get more information about each tissue from the book.

    Epithelial tissue – functions
    Everything you always wanted to know about epithelial tissue, but were affraid to ask – what are its functions. Functions of epithelial tissue – glandular function, sensory function, covering function, stimulus reception.

    Blood
    Everything you always wanted to know about blood, but were affraid to ask - what is blood, what are its elements and functions. Plasma – what does it consist of?

    Epithelial tissue
    Everything you always wanted to know about epithelial tissue, but were affraid to ask – what is it, what types of epithelial tissue can we single out, what are their functions and common features. Types of epithelial tissue: simple epithelial tissue and stratified epithelial tissue.
