epimorphosisEpimorphose (ger.)

  • Regeneration of a part or organism involving extensive cell proliferation followed by differentiation. (Merriam-Webster 2011)
    regeneration morphallaxis

    It appears that there are two principal modes by which regeneration takes place. The first and more familiar process is by means of the formation of new tissue at the exposed region, followed by the development of new organs out of this new tissue. In order to distinguish this mode from the other, we may call it “epimorphosis.”
