1. prokaryotic cells

1.1. bacterial cells

1.2. archaeal cells

2. eukaryotic cells

2.1. animal cells

3. The Human Microbiome: Researchers are starting to argue that our normal microbes could be considered as a separate organ system with its own organs, tissues, and cells. Remember that our microbes outnumber our human cells by almost ten to one! Most of our microbes are composed of prokaryotic cells (especially bacteria) but a good number are composed of eukaryotic cells.

4. The four types of human tissues can join together in different combinations to form organs. A group of organs and tissues function together to create a system. The joining of all of your systems creates your body. "Homeostasis" is a term that is used to describe the internal balance maintained by your systems. Break down the word into its parts: "home/o" means sameness and "-stasis" means standing still.
