indicates ways in which this system affects other systems indicates ways in which other systems affect this one

Integumentary System

Bones lying close to body surfaces shape the skin ^^ Initiates synthesis of vitamin D needed for bone deposition

Muscular System

Bones provide leverage and sites of attachment for muscles; provide calcium needed for muscle contraction ^^ Muscles move bones; stress produced by muscles affects patterns of ossification and remodeling, as well as shape of mature bones

Nervous System

Cranium and vertebral column protect brain and spinal cord; bones provide calcium needed for neural function ^- Sensory receptors provide sensations of body position and pain from bones and joints

Endocrine System

Bones protect endocrine organs in head, chest, and pelvis ^^ Hormones regulate mineral deposition and resorption, bone growth, and skeletal mass and density

Circulatory System

Myeloid tissue forms blood cells; bone matrix stores calcium needed for cardiac muscle activity ^^ Delivers O2, nutrients, and hormones to bone tissue and carries away wastes; delivers blood cells to marrow

Lymphatic/Immune Systems

Most types of blood cells produced in myeloid tissue function as part of immune system ^- Maintains balance of interstitial fluid in bones; lymphocytes assist in defense and repair of bones

Respiratory System

Bones form respiratory passageway through nasal cavity; protect lungs and aid in ventilation ^^ Provides O2 and removes CO2

Urinary System

Skeleton physically supports and protects organs of urinary system ^- Kidneys activate vitamin D and regulate calcium and phosphate excretion

Skeletal System Protects Organs

Digestive System

Skeleton provides bony protection for digestive organs ^^ Provides nutrients needed for bone growth and maintenance

Reproductive System

Skeleton protects some reproductive organs ^- Gonads produce hormones that affect bone growth and closure of epiphyseal plates
