They migrate towards tissues where they are needed and become functional performing various activities. WBCs can be divided into 2 groups: Polymorphonuclear granulocytes and mononuclear agranulocytes. Both types are spherical while suspended in blood plasma but when they invade tissues after leaving the blood vessels they become amoeboid
