37) Stratified epithelium is an effective protective layer because cells in the basal layer reproduce quickly to replace surface cells that are shed. Answer: TRUE Topic: EPITHELIAL TISSUE 38) Closely packed cells and fibers are characteristic of connective tissue. Answer: FALSE Topic: CONNECTIVE TISSUE: General Features 39) Brown fat contains more mitochondria and blood vessels than white fat, and is found almost exclusively in the fetus and infant. Answer: TRUE Topic: CONNECTIVE TISSUE: Loose 40) Tendons and ligaments are examples of dense regular connective tissue. Answer: TRUE Topic: CONNECTIVE TISSUE: Dense 41) Dense connective tissue is termed dense because of the thick consistency of the fluid ground substance.

Cells are densely packed together, with very little extracellular space. 5. An extracellular basement membrane underlies the basal surface of a layer of epithelial cells. 6. Epithelial tissue is avascular. 7. Epithelial tissue has a high rate of cell division. 8. Epithelial tissue has a nerve supply. 9.
