Compatative anatomy


connective tissue consists of what? cartilage and bone
cartilage chondrocytes in lacunae,matrix(elastic and collagen fibers),supplied by diffusion(slows healing process)(hyaline(hip and knee),elastic(ear),fibrocartilage(inner vert disks),calcified(sharks))
bone osteocytes in lacunae,matrix(calcium phosphate),supplied by bloodstream via central canal.bone is only found in vert b/c previously used calcium carbionate reacts with warm acidic places therefore bone had to be made from something else.
bone development consists of endochondral bone and intramembranous bone
endochondral bone starts as cartilage, also called replacement bone fish,amphibians,reptiles-keep growing while mammals and birds stop growing
intramembranous bone forms directly as bone(no cartilage intermediate),often dermal,often flat(ribs)
