What other bones does the occipital bone articulate with?

Proposed merge with Ossification of occipital bone[edit]

I have proposed this merge, between the 'ossification' page and this article, because:

  • There is no need for the information on ossification to be hidden away on a separate article. This means the information is not presented as it could be, and it is needlessly fragmented.
  • It is standard on Anatomy pages, and recommended in WP:MEDMOS#Anatomy, for 'Development' sections to be displayed on the same page.
  • Additionally, this page is small and it would give more context to have the information displayed in a central location, rather than hidden on a separate article.
  • If necessary, the article on ossification could be expanded at a later date. LT910001 (talk) 07:18, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
