As a result of cell division in the medullary cavity B. Due to increased production of bone matrix by osteoclasts C. As a result of increased activity within the epiphyseal plate D.

As compact bone is deposited beneath the periosteum of the diaphysis. The matrix of the bone contains osteoclasts and chondroblasts. The bone matrix is very dense and contains deposits of calcium salts. Narrow channels pass through the matrix to allow for muscle attachment. For strength, compact bone is organized into a meshwork of matrix called trabeculae.

The matrix of bone is mostly collagen with very little. Upon examining some old deer and bison bones, it was discovered that they were broken in half to expose the medullary cavity that at one time had been filled with yellow bone marrow. The bones were broken to provide _____ in the diet of the user.

The bones that compose the adult skeleton are divided into five categories based on their shapes (Figure ).Like other structure/function relationships in the body, their shapes and their functions are related such that each categorical shape of bone has a distinct function.

Most interesting of all, however, was the discovery in by Dublin researchers Glennon and Nolan of a huge collection of animal bones surrounding an island in the middle of Lough Gûr - a small lake near Limerick.
