  • n. The regeneration of tissue
  • n. The formation of new minerals

from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • n. A new genesis or begetting; new production. See the extract. The term neogenesis was first used to explain this sudden origin of new forms from old-established species, if I am not mistaken, by my friend and colleague Professor Paolo Mantegazza, many years ago; it has been since used, more or less in the same sense, by the late Professor Cope and by others.
