absorption; secretion of mucus,enzymes & other substances;ciliated type propels mucus by ciliary action. simple columnar epithelium
fake or falsely layered. columnar cells on top.secretion, particularly of mucus. propulsion of mucus by ciliary action. pseudostratified(ciliated) columnar epithelium
protects underlying tissue in areas subjected to abrasion.more than one layer.cells on top are flat (30 layers) stratified squamous epithelium
wraps & cushions organs (paint brush strokes (fibers)) loose connective tissue: areolar connective tissue
provides reserve food fuel; insulates against heat loss;supports &protects organs loose connective tissue: adipose tissue:adipocytes
fibers from a soft skeleton (stroma). supports other cell types (cherry blossom) loose connective tissue: reticular connective tissue
attaches muscles to bones or to muscle; attaches bone to bone dense connective tissue: regular connective tissue(tendon)
allows recoil of tissue following stretching. maintains pulsatile flow of blood through arteries dense connective tissue: elastic connective tissue (aorta)
glassy-supports & reinforces, has resilient cushioning properties cartilage: hyaline cartilage (trachea)
