For which bones do these two types of ossification apply? How is the building of bone different for both of these processes?For endochondrial ossificaiton, where is the first ossification center located? The second? Which bones display interstitial growth? interstitial growth is most like what form of ossification? Explain. How are both osteoblasts and osteoclasts involved in appositional bone growth? Describe the different zones of growth at the epiphyseal plate. How does growth at the epiphyseal plate explain how children’s bones grow longWhat is bone remodeling and what are the two processes that control bone remodeling?
