Morphological features of plants and animals

Let's start from the beginning. Science morphology studies the internal and external structure of living organisms or their groups (genera, species groups). There are external and internal morphological characteristics of living organisms. Internal morphology is the well-known anatomy. One should not confuse morphology with physiology, which deals with the study of the functions of certain organs or systems of animals or plants.

It seems, in the definition of morphology is no big deal. But behind the apparent simplicity lies a huge amount of information. Morphology of animals combines several Sciences: anatomy, histology, Cytology and embryology. Same thing with the morphology of plants. It is for a number of morphological characteristics, we can refer the animal to a particular species, genus or even detachment. This, for example, height, weight, color of hair and eyes, length and shape of the tail and other features of the structure.

To the morphological characteristics of plants include the shape and size of leaves, shape of stem, type of flower and fruit and the like.

The morphology of the person

Like any living object, man too is subject to the General laws of biology. And in anthropology (the science that studies the human) have a special section of human morphology. This science is tightly connected with the rasovedenie in the study of certain patterns of development and change of those or other features characteristic of different people. For example, the morphology of the person can explain what the skull of the Negro differs from the European or skull to reveal the regularities of changes of skin color and hair depending on the habitat groups of people. Returning to the morphological characteristics, we can say quite simply: it's how you look – your height, color of hair and eyes, skin tone and body Constitution.

The morphological features of the soil

There is a common classification of soils based on their morphological features. It is not surprising, because each type of soil can be described on the basis of its external signs. In this case, scientists are the Foundation of such morphological features as the structure, the capacity of the soil and of its separate horizons, color, structure, addition, tumors include. And since the processes occurring in the soil have a direct impact on all these signs, studying the morphology of the soil, you can learn a lot about its origins and history.
