BIO 168 Anatomy & Physiology
Can you help me understand this Biology question?
Discussion Question #1: During a microscopy exercise in the anatomy laboratory, a student makes the following observations about a tissue section: A) the section contains some different types of scattered protein fibers–that is, they exhibit different widths (some are branched and some are long and unbranched); B) the observed section has some “open spaces”–that is, places between both cells and the fibers that appear clear with no recognizable features; and C) several connective tissue cell types are scattered throughout the section, but these cells are not grouped tightly together.
What type of tissue is the student observing? Where might this tissue be found in the body?
