Mucous membrane ( mucosa)
serosa of the heart
clear fluid secreted by parietal and visceral
joint cavity lined with synovium
_______is composed of simple squamous epithelium and lines body cavities that are closed to the exterior. The parietal layer lines the wall of the ventral cavity; the visceral layer covers the outside of the organs
Serous membrane (serosa)
serosa of the thorax and lungs
synovial membranes composed of soft areolar connective tissueand contain no epitheliulm. They line the fibrous capsule surrounding joints
Connective tissue membranes
serosa of the abdomen and abdominal organs
loose connective tissue underlying epithelium
lubricating fluid secreted by the synovium
cutaneous membranes (skin), mucous membranes, and serous membranes
soft areolar connective tissue
epithelial and connective are the two major categories
