  Cells, Tissues, and Organs (The Human Machine) Paperback – J by Richard Spilsbury (Author)Author: Richard Spilsbury.   Cells, Tissues, and Organs examines how cells work together to form tissues, organs, and organ systems. You will learn about the scientists who first viewed cells, the different parts of plant and animal cells and why your body breathes, circulates blood, and feels pain.5/5(2). Theoretical Systems in Biology: Hierarchical and Functional Integration, Volume II: Tissues and Organs discusses the phenomenology of physiological mechanisms. The book is comprised 10 chapters that are organized into two parts. The book contains limited amounts of biochemistry, physiology, endocrinology and neurobiology, but a sufficient amount of material so that the student can correlate functional information to the microscopic organization of tissues and organs. Hopefully, this mix will permit maximum learning and understanding of structure-function by:

Organs and Organ Systems. After tissues, organs are the next level of organization of the human body. An organ is a structure that consists of two or more types of tissues that work together to do the same job. Examples of human organs include the brain, heart, lungs, skin, and kidneys. Tissues become organized to form organs and organs into organ systems. Workload of individual cell ahs decreased due to origin of tissues. As a result of improved organization and higher efficiency, multicellular organisms have higher survival. Classification of tissues. Tissues are broadly classified as animal tissues and; plant tissues. >. The heart contains all four kinds of tissue: muscle tissue, nervous tissue, connective tissue, and epithelial tissue. Each type of tissue contributes to the over all job of pumping blood. Each organ in your body is part of an organ system which is a group of organs that work together to . Tissue Membranes. A tissue membrane is a thin layer or sheet of cells that covers the outside of the body (for example, skin), the organs (for example, pericardium), internal passageways that lead to the exterior of the body (for example, abdominal mesenteries), and the lining of the moveable joint cavities. There are two basic types of tissue membranes: connective tissue and epithelial.

Cells make up tissues, tissues make up organs, and organs make up organ systems. The function of an organ system depends on the integrated activity of its organs. For instance, digestive system organs cooperate to process food.   Cells, Tissues and Organs very informative nonfiction book, written by Donna Latham. This book mostly talks about different kinds of cells, organisms, tissues and all their functions. It also talks about diseases in specific organ systems or cells.4/5. The lymphatic system also includes many small collections of tissue, called lymph nodes, and an organ called the spleen, both of which remove pathogens and cellular debris from the lymph or blood. In addition, the thymus gland in the lymphatic system produces some types of white blood cells (lymphocytes) that fight infections. Cells, tissues, organs and systems. Multicellular organisms are organised into increasingly complex parts. In order, from least complex to most complex.
