Groups of cells with a similar structure together with the non-living material (inter-cellular substance) between them form many a type of tissues.

Tissues performing a common function or functions are grouped into organs, e.g. heart is one of the vital organs of the body. Team-work is an essential ingredient for survival in the living body. A 'system' is a group of organs working together to perform a series of functions.

The skeletal system, the muscular system, the skin etc. are some of these. The other important systems of the body which merit more detailed treatment are:

  1. Nervous system

  2. Circulatory system

  3. Respiratory system

  4. Digestive and excretory system

  5. Endocrine system.
