- b a clear, watery fluid secreted by the cells of a serous membrane.
- c the serous membrane covering the lungs and lining the thoracic cavity.

- e the skin; composed of epidermal and dermal layers
5 Multiple choice questions
- slightly slanted compound structures. The inner epidermal sheath is composed of epithelial tissue and forms the hair. The outer dermal sheath is actually dermal connective tissue. Dermal region supplies blood vessels to the epidermal portion/reinforces it.
- essentially is adipose tissue. Not part of the skin, but it does anchor the skin to underlying organs and provides a site for nutrient (fat) storage. The tissue serves as a shock absorber and insulates the deeper tissues from the extreme temperature changes occurring outside the body. (responsible for women's curves).
- Sweat glands in the pubic and underarm areas that secrete thicker sweat, that produce odor. (secretions contain water, salts, fatty acids, and proteins)
- the outermost layer, 20 to 30 cell layers thick and accounts for ¾ of the epidermal thickness. Shinglelike dead cell remnants, full of keratin. The layer provides a durable overcoat for the body. Protects deeper cells from hostile environment(air) and from water loss. Resists biological, chemical, and physical assaults. Layer is replaced by cells produced by the division of the deeper stratum basale cells. New epidermis every 25 to 45 days. (flakes off as dandruff)
- a smooth muscle attached to hair follicles that causes "goose bumps" to appear on the skin when contracted
5 True/False questions
Peritoneum . → the serous membrane lining the interior of the abdominal cavity and covering the surfaces of the abdominal organs.
Epidermis → the deep layer of the skin; composed of dense, irregular connective tissue
Melanocytes → Cells that produce melanin.
Nail → a scale-like modification of the epidermis that corresponds to the hoof or claw of other animals. Has a free edge, a body(visible attached portion), and a root (embedded in the skin).
Serous membrane → membrane that lines a cavity without an opening to the outside of the body (except for joint cavities, which have a synovial membrane); serosa.
