It is his investigations made with direct reference to morphology and reproduction that claim our attention most.
What proportion of time should be given to morphology in relation to other interests?
I will now briefly touch on another branch of the argument from morphology—the argument, namely, from rudimentary structures.
Furthermore, morphology is in reality a basal consideration.
It is one thing in this plant, quite another in that, so students of vegetable anatomy or morphology soon discover.
He made the study of development an essential part of morphology.
morphology, or the science of dead organisms, receives more than its due share of attention.
The influence of the cell-theory on morphology was not altogether happy.
The cells of this group have the morphology of the flagellate cells (choanocytes) of sponges.
It led him to take only a lukewarm interest in the problems of morphology.
morphology mor·phol·o·gy (môr-fŏl'ə-jē)
The branch of biology that deals with the form and structure of organisms without consideration of function.
The form and structure of an organism or one of its parts.
The size, shape, and structure of an organism or one of its parts. Biologists usually describe the morphology of an organism separately from its physiology. In traditional systems of taxonomy, classifications were based on the morphological characteristics of organisms. However, a method of classification based purely on morphology runs the risk of grouping together organisms that are actually relatively unrelated but have evolved similar features. In more modern systems of taxonomy, the genetic similarity of organisms, studied through the methods of molecular biology, is considered in addition to morphology when establishing taxa.
