Connective tissue is derived from mesenchyme (unlike most epithelial tissue which is derived from ectoderm and endoderm).
Connective tissue may be distinguished as either loose or dense, depending on the proportion of fibers.
Dense elastic connective tissue is found wherever the elasticity of elastin is of paramount importance, as in the ligamentum flavum (flavum refers to the yellow color conferred by the elastin) and the aorta.
