Anatomy deals with the macroscopic scale, histology with microscopic levels (tissue and cell structures). Regulated assemblies of cells produce biological tissues. The tissue morphology depends on the cell shapes, hence on cellular cytoskeletons and on cell adhesions, which are controlled by the mechanics of the cells subjected to forces. Biological tissues are, thereby, able to resist applied stresses and remodel.
