  1. Identify this specific tissue.

    What types of fiber are present?

    What cell types are present?

    Where could this tissue be found?
    Dense regular. You can tell by the presence of collagen, and how organized and dense the fibers are.

    Collagen fibers.


    Tendons, most ligaments, aponeuroses.
  2. Identify this tissue.

    What types of fiber are present?
    Hyaline cartilage. You can tell by presence of lacunae, perichondrium.

    Collagen type II. (Not visible)
  3. Identify this space (arrow).

    What cells are found here (circle)?

    Lecunae. You can tell because you know it's a cartilage tissue.

    Chondrocytes are found here.
  4. Identify this tissue.

    Where would you find this tissue?

    Pseudostratified Ciliated Columnar.

    Trachea/Bronchi (Respiratory tract; because of this tissue's role in secretion, particularly of mucus and propulsion of mucus by ciliary action and movement.
  5. Identify this tissue.

    What type of fiber predominates?

    Where can this tissue be found?

    Reticular Tissue.

    Reticular fibers.

    Lymphoid organs (such as the lymph nodes, bne marrow, and spleen). Because of it's function of forming a soft internal skeleton that supports other cell types including white blood cells, mast cells, and macrophages.
  6. Identify this tissue.

    Where would you find it?

    Stratified Squamous (non-keratinized). You can tell because the basal cells are cuboidal or columnar while the surface cells are flattened (squamous).

    Esophagus, vagina, rectum.

    Keratinized vs. non-keratinized.

    Keratinized: surface cells are full of keratin and dead. Can be found in the ksin.

    Non-keratinized: Forms the moist linings of he esophagus, mouth, and vagina.
  7. Identify this tissue.

    Where can this tissue be found?

    Transitional epithelia. You can tell by the rounded/domed shaped edge.

    Found in the urinary bladder, ureters, and urethra. Makes sense because it's function is for expansion and recoil.
  8. Identify this tissue.

    Where could this tissue be found?


    Found under the skin in the hypodermis, around the kidneys and eyeballs, within the abdomen, or in the breasts.
  9. Identify this tissue (arrows).

    Where would you find it?

    Simple squamous epithelia.

    Can be found in the capillaries, alveoli, or renal glomeruli. Kidney glomeruli and orpuscles, air scs of lungs, lining of heart, blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels. - Areas where we want rapid diffusion. Think of it's funtion of allowing the passage of materials by diffusion and filtration in areas where protection is not important.
  10. Identify this tissue.

    Where would you find this tissue?

    What types of fibers are present?

    Elastic tissue.

    You would find this tissue in the walls of large arteries, within certain ligaments associated with the vertebral column, or within the walls of the bronchial tubes.

    Elastic fibers.
  11. Identify this tissue (be specific).

    Where can this be found?

    What fibers are present?

    What cell types are present?

    Dense irregular. You can tell because of the space and the collagen going many different directions.

    Dermis of the skin, submucosa of digestive tract, fibrous capsules of organs and of joints. Think of it's function of being able to withstand tension exerted in many directions and it's function of providing structural strength.

    Primary collagen fibers, some elastic fibers.

  12. Identify this tissue.

    Where would you find it?

    Simple columnar epithelia.

    Found in the stomach, intestine, gall bladder, and fallopian tube. Think of its function of secretion and absorption.

    Nonciliated type lines most of the digestive tract, gallbladder, and exretoryducts of some glands.

    Ciliated type lines small bronchi, uterine tubes, and some regions of the uterus.
