Ossificatio, Ossifactio, from on, 'a bone,' and facere, 'to make.' Osteogenia, Osteogenesis, Osteosis, Ostosis. Formation of bone. Development or increase of the osseous system. Ossification takes place in the same manner as the nutrition of other organs. The bones are, at first, mucous, and afterwards cartilaginous; the cartilage, at length, receives the phosphate of lime, and is, at the same time, replaced by a gelatinous parenchyma, when the bone has acquired the whole of its development.
