What are the four major tissue types in animals?

Epithelial-line body parts
Connective-hold body structures together
Muscular-move body parts
Nervous-respond to nerve messages

2

Four major tissue types in plants?

Meristematic-divide and produce new cells for growth
Dermal-protect outside of plant
Ground tissue-fill inside of plant
Vascular-carry water and nutrients

Structure of smooth muscle?

Long,slender cells made of muscle fibres
