Identify the type of tissue in the following:
Skin, bark of tree, bone, lining of kidney tubule, vascular bundle.

Answer :

The type of tissue in the following are:

Skin : Squamous epithelial tissue

A simple squamous epithelium is a single layer of flat cells in contact with the basal lamina of the epithelium.

Bark of tree : Protective tissue and cork

The cork cells are dead and compactly packed with no intercellular space. They have cell walls that are coated with a waxy substance called as suberin which do not allow water and gases to pass through it.

Bone : Connective tissue

Connective tissue is the tissue that connects, separates and supports all other types of tissues in the body. It consists of cells surrounded by a compartment of fluid called as the extracellular matrix.

Lining of kidney tubule : Cuboidal epithelial tissue

Simple cuboidal epithelium consists of a monolayer of epithelial cells that appear to be square-shaped in cross section. They have large, rounded, centrally located nuclei and all the cells of this epithelium are directly attached to the basement membrane.

Vascular bundle : Conducting tissue (xylem and phloem)

Vascular tissue is a complex conducting tissue, which is formed of more than one types of cell and is found in vascular plants. The primary components of vascular tissue are the xylem and phloem. These two tissues help in the transport of fluid and nutrients internally in the plant.
