The connective tissues are blood,bone,ligaments,tendons,cartilage and areolar tissues.
Blood:-Blood has a fluid matrix called plasma,in which RBC's,WBC's and platelets are suspended.Blood floats and transports gases,oxygen and other various items to all parts of the body.
Bone:-It forms the framework that supports the body.It also anchors the muscles and support the main organs of the body.It is a strong and non-flexible tissue.
Ligament:-Two bones can be connected to each other by the connective tissue ligament.This tissue is very elastic.It contains very little matrix.
Tendons:-Tendons are connective tissues that connect muscles and bones.They are fibrous tissues with great strength.
Cartilage:-It has widely spaced cells.The solid matrix is composed of proteins and sugars.They smoothens the bone surfaces at the joints and are also present in nose,ears etc...
