I wonder over the distinction "animal tissue" and "plant tissue". Does "animal" here actually mean mammal, or do all animals including insects etc. have these four types of tissues? / Habj 00:52, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Generally speaking, yes. -Dcfleck 23:59, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
    • ...? / Habj 01:22, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
  • In general, all kinds of animals have these four basic types of tissue, including animals as simple as jellyfish and corals. And these kinds of tissues are different in plants, where tissues evolved independently from unicellular ancestors. -- EncycloPetey 04:44, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

Why aren't parenchyma/secretory tissues mentioned?

  • Parenchyma is generalized (unspecialized) tissue. In both animals and plants, it can occur in a wide array of more specific tissue types. In plants, for example, parenchyma occurs in the xylem, in the phloem, in the epidermis, in the cortex. The way this article is currently structured, it covers the major tissue types, and not all of the specific subtypes. If you're amenable to the idea (and have the requisite knowledge), I'd say that you should expand the parenchyma article. If that article were a full and proper length, it probably would be more prominently featured.

What's the deal with the last sentence of the "Connective Tissue" section? Who is that, what's the source, and why is it in the 1st person? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Luwolf (talkcontribs) 20:01, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

types of animal tissue[edit]

A picky point perhaps. The text says there are four basic types of tissue in the body of all animals, but 5 are listed: Epithelium, Connective tissue, Muscle tissue, Nervous tissue, and Areolar connective tissue. Am I forgetting something?

Prevelance[edit]

Can anyone tell me which 2 or 3 specific tissues are the most prevalent by volume in rats? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Deathgecko (talkcontribs) 01:11, 4 November 2008 (UTC) ij —Preceding unsigned comment added by 125.60.209.68 (talk) 06:03, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Note re copy-paste tag[edit]

I'm removing the "copy-paste" tag from the top of the article. The indicated web link appears to be a verbatrim copy of the Wikipedia article, specifically this version. Compare the contents of the apical and intercalary meristem sub-sub-sections in the weblink, copied version, current version, and for example this and this earlier version. The text was originated at this site (as was the typo "gth,a" which got blindly copied too, which made the searching easier :). Franamax (talk) 23:45, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 12 January 2013[edit]

The sentence "A tissue is an ensemble of similar cells and from the same origin, that together carry out a specific function." appears to have an error in my eyes. The "...similar cells and from the same origin..." part seems to be a poor example of integrating information into an article. I would suggest something along the lines of "A tissue is an ensemble of similar cells from the same origin that together carry out a specific function." ConfusedKev (talk) 02:31, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for that suggestion, it's a definite improvement. --Anthonyhcole (talk) 07:50, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

What about fungal tissues?[edit]

Why only animal and plant tissues? What about fungal tissues? The third kingdom? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.233.96.29 (talk) 11:49, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Underwater diving[edit]

At the bottom of the page there is a link to the Underwater diving portal, a navigation box for Diving medicine, physiology, physics and environment as well a link to the Underwater diving physiology category. I believe these will not be relevant to most visitors of this page and should therefore be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.125.171.175 (talk) 14:23, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
