Definition: Morphology is the study of shapes, and largerly of what can be seen.

In biology and medicine, it is the study of the form and structure of organisms and their specific structural features.

In pathology, it is the visual study of the anomalies caused by diseases, called morphological anomalies. They can be seen at the naked eye - macroscopy ( macroscopical anomalies ) or by microscopy ( microscopical anomalies ).
