Formation of Tissues to become an Organ

Various types of tissues are associated together to carry out a specific function of the body and such structures are known as organs. In animals, stomach, heart, brain, etc., are specific organs carrying out specific functions due to the interaction of various tissues.

The heart is involved in the pumping of blood, which in turn is circulated to other organs and tissues by a network of arteries. Blood from various organs and tissues is brought back to the heart by another network of tubes called veins. Thus, forms an important system called the circulatory system. Kidneys are another example of organs. They are involved in the excretion of metabolic waste and other toxins produced in the body.

Similarly, there are a large number of organs such as stomach, intestine, liver, pancreas muscles, reproductive organs such as testes, ovaries, external genitalia, etc., that carry out specific functions in association with other organs. There are varieties of glandular organs, both ductless glands such as pituitary, thymus, adrenal, etc., and glands with ducts such as the salivary glands that execute their function primarily by secreting specific enzymes and hormones to carry out various metabolic activities.
