Tissues forming the skin in vertebrates

State some of the tissues which form the skin in the vertebrates?




The skin of the vertebrates is generally, made up of the epidermis, an external layer of the epithelial tissue, and dermis, a layer of connective tissue under the epidermis. One can also cite the hypodermis, a layer of adipose tissue under the dermis. Skin annexes can exist in some phyla and classes, such as hair, sebaceous glands and sweat glands.
