a major functional difference between the appendicular and axial divisions the appendicular division makes you an active, mobile person
bones that make up the appendicular division of the skeleton the pectoral and pelvic girdles, and the upper and lower limbs
pelvis composite structure that includes portions of both the appendicular and axial skeleton
clavicle and scapula PECTORAL girdle bones
acromion process large posterior process on the scapula
ulna and radius parallel bones that support the forearm
head process of the humerus that articulates the scapula
ilium, pubis, ischium PELVIC girdle bones
primary function of the PECTORAL girdle position the shoulder joint and provide a base for arm movement
pubic symphysis amphiarthrotic articulation which limits movements between the two pubic bones
tibia large medial bone of the lower leg
linea aspera prominent deviation that runs along the center of the posterior surface of the femur, which serves as an attachment site for muscles that abduct the femur
broad, light, smooth general appearance of the female pelvis (as compared to the male)
oval to round shape of the pelvic inlet in the female
development of various ridges and general bone mass selections that would be used to estimate muscular development and body weight
skull and pelvis two specific areas of the skeleton that are used to identify significant differences between a male and female
bone weight and bone markings skeletal elements generally used to determine sex and age
the size and roughness of bone markings selections used to determine the age of a skeleton
UPPER and LOWER EXTREMITIES The appendicular skeleton includes the bones of the PECTORAL and PELVIC and the __________ and ________ ________
clavicle the only direct connection between the pectoral girdle and the axial skeleton
PECTORAL girdle the shoulder area and its component bones
glenoid fossa where the scapula articulates witht he proxima end of the humerous
styloid processes long shaft processes of the ulna and the radius
radiocarpal articulations and intercarpal articulations are responsible for the movements of hte wrist
coxae the six bones of the pelvic girdle
ventrally how the coxae are connected by a pad of fibrocartilage at the pubic symphasis
malle olus process that the tibia and fibula have in common that acts as a shield for the ankle
acetabulom articulates with the head of the femur at hip joint to either side
popliteal ligaments are responsible for reiforcing the back of the knee
enlarged pelvic outlet in the female, an adaptation for child-bearing
examine the condition of an individual's teeth a major means of determining the medical history of a person
axially on the skull and appendicular aspects of the pelvis the skeletal differences between males and females
a skeletal change related to age reduction in mineral content of the bony matrix
carpals, tarsals wrist and ankle bones
ball and socket shoulder joint
patella kneecap
