Pattern of regeneration in which proliferation precedes the development of a new part. Opposite of morphallaxis.
Arthropod development in which all specifically larval forms are suppressed or passed before hatching; the juvenile that hatches has the adult body form.
Epimorphosis is the regeneration of tissues or organs through the dedifferentiation of existing, differentiated adult tissues.
