Fibrous Connective Tissue
Very dense due to large amounts of collagenous fibers and forms tendons and ligaments
A specialized form of loose connective tissue which stores fat.
Occurrs when a leukocyte engulfs a bacteria and breaks them down.
Amoeboid cells which roam fibers and engulf bacteria and debris of dead cells (called Phagocytosis).
Secretes the protein ingredients of the extracellular fibers.
Loose Connective Tissue
Binds epithelia to underlying tissues and acts as packing material and holds organs in place.
Made of collagen, are thin and branched, not too strong, forms a tightly woven fabric that joins connective tissues to adjacant tissues.
Long threads of elastin, is rubbery and elastic.
Made of collagen, these fibers are fairly thick, nonelastic, and fairly strong.
Tissue which consists of a sparse population of cells spread through an extracellular matrix. It holds things together and keeps separate organs from joining into one.
Sheets of tightly packed cells which cover the body and line the organs and acts as a barrier between organs and body and the outside world.
A type of epithelial tissue which is shaped like bricks set on end and are present in nasal passages, intestinal lining, and inner surface of urethra.
A type of epithelial tissue which is dice-shaped and are present in kidney tubules.
A type of epithelial tissue where cells are flat and are present in blood vessels, air sacs, skin, and lining of esophagus, anus, and vagina.
An abundance of collagenous fibers embedded in a rubbery matrix made of chondroitin sulfate.
A form of mineralized connective tissue.
Consists of plasma and blood cells and transports fluids throughout body.
A type of tissue which senses stimuli and transmits signals.
Composed of branched cells and located in the heart.
Nonshivering Thermogenesis (NST)
A type of thermoregulation which mammals and birds ONLY can perform where metabolic activity occurs within mitochondria, resulting in heat production.
Specializations that Mammals and Birds use for Thermoregulation
Muscle Activity (shivering), Torpor (hibernation), and Nonshivering Thermogenesis (NST).
Animals whose body heat is close to the temperature of the environment; are conformers to the environment.
Animals who use metabolic heat to keep their body temperature higher than that of the environment; are regulators.
Secretes collagen and chondroitin sulfate, which make a strong and flexible support system.
Regulating solute balance and the gain/loss of water.
Adaptions that Help Animals Thermoregulate
Insulation/Sweating, Vasodilation (warm the skin = heat loss), Vasoconstriction (keeps the warm blood inside body), Countercurrent heat exchange (reduces heat loss to environment), Behavioral Responses (ie: going to the shade when it's hot), and Changing the rate of metabolic heat production (increase or decrease)
Groups of cells with a common structure and function.
Tendons and ligaments are examples of what type of connective tissue? A Blood, B Bone, C Cartilage, D Loose connective tissue, or E Fibrous connective tissue?
E. fibrous connective tissue
Another year and a poor dog is still sitting on a rock. The dog starts
panting to cool down its body temperature.
This type of heat transfer is called: A Countercurrent exchange, B Radiation, C Conduction, D Convection, or E Evaporation?
