Location: Smooth Muscle
blood vessels, airways to the lungs, stomach, intestines, gallbladder, urinary bladder, and uterus

(walls of hollow internal structures)
Location: Fibrocartilage
Pubic symphysis, intervertebral discs, menisci of knee, and portions of tendons that insert into cartilage.
Location: Elastic Cartilage

Usually attached to bones by tendons
Location: Compact Bone
Make up various parts of bones of the body

(both compact and spongy tissue do this)
Location: Nervous Tissue

forms the center of flat bones, e.g. skull, and the heads of the long bones.
Location: Blood Tissue
Within blood vessels, and within the chambers of the heart
Location: Simple Squamous Epithelium
Lines heart, blood vessels and the air sacs of the lungs
Location: Stratified Squamous Epithelium
forms superficial layer of skin lines wet surfaces (mouth, esophagus, vagina)
Location: Simple Cuboidal Epithelium
Covers the surface of the ovary lines anterior surface of capsule of the lens of the eye forms, pigmented epithelium at back of the eye
Location: Loose Areolar c.t
subcutaneous layer deep to skin, papillary region of dermis of skin, lamina propria of mucous membranes and around blood vessels, nerves and body organs
Location: Simple Columnar Epithelium
lines the gastrointestinal tract from the stomach to the anus, ducts of many glands and the gall bladder
Location: Adipose C.T
subcutaneous layer deep to skin, around heart and kidneys, yellow bone marrow and padding around joints and behind eyeball in eye socket
Location: Ciliated pseudostratified epithelium
lines the airways of most of upper respiratory tract, lines larger ducts, and part of the male urethra
Location: Reticular C.T
Stroma of liver, lymph nodes, red bone marrow, reticular lamina of basement membrane, and around blood vessels and muscles
Location: Transitional Epithelium
lines urinary bladder and portions of ureter and urethra
Location: Dense Regular C.T
Forms tendons, most ligaments and aponeuroses
Function: Smooth Muscle

(construction of blood vessels and airways, propulsion of foods through gastrointestinal tract, contraction of urinary bladder and gallbladder)
Function: Elastic Cartilage
Gives Support and Maintains Shape
Function: CARDIAC Muscle
Pumps blood to all parts of body
Function: Compact Bone
Support, protection, storage, houses blood forming tissue, serves as levers that act together with muscle to enable movement
Function: Skeletal Muscles
Motion, Posture, Heat Production
Function: Fibrocartilage
Support and Fusion
Function: Cancellous Bone
Support and Protect Red Bone Marrow???
Function: Hyaline Cartilage
Provides smooth surfaces for movement at joints, as well as flexibility and support
Function: Red Blood Cells
Red Blood Cells transport oxygen and carbon dioxide

white blood cells carry on phagocytosis and are involved in allergic reactions and immune system responses

platelets are essential for the clotting of the blood
Function: Nervous Tissue
exhibits sensitivity to various types of stimuli, converts stimuli into nerve impulses, and conducts nerve impulses to other neurons, muscle fibers, or glands
