That which has relation to the anatomical conformation of parts. Applied, at times to the alterations in the form of the several parts of the embryo, in contradistinction to histological, which is applied to the trasformation by which the tissues are gradually generated. In comparative anatomy, it is applied to the history of the modification of forms, which the same organ under goes in different animals.
