Tissue is a group of cells similar in structure and/or work together to perform a particular function. All cells of a tissue have common origin.
Plant Tissues and Animal Tissues:
Tissues in plants and animals vary in their structure, function, and origin.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PLANT TISSUE AND ANIMAL TISSUE
|Plant tissues||Animal tissues|
|In plants, dead supportive tissues are more abundant as compared to living tissues.||In multicellular animals living tissues are more common as compared to dead tissues.|
|Plant tissues require less maintenance energy.||
Animal tissues require more maintenance energy.
|In plant tissue, differentiation of meristematic and permanent tissues exists.||Such a differentiation is absent in animal tissues.|
|Meristematic tissues of plants lead to the growth of plants throughout their life.||Animals do not show growth after reaching maturity. Reparative growth is, however, present.|
|Plant tissue has simple organization.||Organization of animal tissues is complex with the development of more specialised and localized organs and organ system.|
|Tissues organization is meant for stationary habit of plants.||Tissue organisation is targeted towards high mobility of animals.|
