  3. Movement—bones with their joints constitute levers that move as muscles contract.

  4. Mineral storage—bones are the major reservoir for calcium, phosphorus, and other minerals. The serves as a storehouse for about 98% of body calcium reserves.

  5. Hematopoiesis—blood cell formation is carried out by myeloid tissue.

  6. Fat storage. A small amount but still can be called upon.

  7. Magnesium and sodium storage.

  8. Cushion jolts and blows.

The official meaning is “The process of formation and development of the various types of blood cells and other formed elements.”
