What is the function of Stratified Columnar Epithelial tissue?
Columnar stratified epithelium - Not very common. Found in the bulbar conjunctiva (membrane covering whites of eyes).
so i would assume protection was the major function. Columnar stratified epithelium - Not very common. Found in the bulbar conjunctiva (membrane covering whites of eyes).

It depends. there are four types of tissue, connective tissue, nervous, muscle and epithelial tissue. some examples are.. Connective tissue: adipose, areolar, dense regular, dense irregular Epithelial: simple squamous, stratified squamous, simple columnar, stratified columnar, simple cuboidal, stratified cuboidal, pseudostratified columnar, and transtional
The basic types of epithelial tissue are simple squamous, stratified squamous (keratinized). stratified squamous (non-keratinized), simple cuboidal, stratified cuboidal, simple columnar (ciliated), simple columnar (non-ciliated), stratified columnar, pseudostratified columnar (ciliated), pseudostratified columnar (non-ciliated). A separate type of epithelial tissue is transitional, which is found in the urinary bladder and some other places. The Wikipedia article on this is surprisingly good. Most professors will also expect you to learn at least one example of where each…
They are generally classified by size and shape Epithelial tissue is classified according to: 1. The number of cell layers Simple Pseudostratified Stratified 2. The shape of the cells Squamous Cuboidal Columnar Mixed/Varied 3. Whether the cells are ciliated or unciliated So examples of epithelial tissue using this classification would be Simple squamous (found in the lungs and kidneys) Simple cuboidal (found in the lining of the stomach and fallopian tubes) Ciliated pseudostratified columnar (found…
