The tissues in the body.

There are (4) major tissues in the body. They are 1) Epithelia 2) Connective 3) Nervous 4) Muscular.
I'm currently learning about various epithelial tissues.
There are (8): they are Simple Cuboidal, Simple Culumnar, Simple Squamous, Stratified Cuboidal, Stratified Culumnar, Stratified Squamous, Pseudostratified, and Transitional.

Stratified squamous is the most abundant in the human body. These tissues are found in certain areas of the body, for ex: The Stratified Squamous is found in the Anal canal, Vagina, esophagus and the mouth. The function of it is to protect.

That's all for now folks.
