Cells and Organelles; Tissues

Some organisms do exist as single cells - for example, Amoeba,

but many organisms are multicellular and consist of from hundreds to billions of cells.

The functions of the organism are divided up amongst the groups of cells, which become specialised for particular roles.

Specialised cells show division of labour by being grouped into tissues.
