    "A number of cells together is a tissue
    Why is a number of sperm not a tissue?"
    It's a question on my homework and I don't have a clue.
    Help?

    Can you name a difference between a clump of sperm and a tissue like muscle for instance (other than the type of cell)?

    Sperm don't associate with other sperm through adhesion molecules. I never took anatomy or histology so that's my best guess lol.

    group of cells working together inside an organ to perform a similar fnction is called tissue..but sperm is not like that...sperm is monoploid in status...and it is a single cell not connected with other cells as cells in tissue

    Sperm is part of a tissue. Just not in its final stages.

    Doesn't it have a seperate name when it's in the testes?

    Spermatophyte or something like that?
