[morpho- + G. genesis, production]

morphogenesis

/mor·pho·gen·e·sis/ (mor″fo-jen´ĕ-sis) the evolution and development of form, as the development of the shape of a particular organ or part of the body, or the development undergone by individuals who attain the type to which the majority of the individuals of the species approximate.

morphogenesis

The constellation of biological processes that determine an organism’s shape, which is inextricably intertwined with cell growth and differentiation, the other key elements of developmental biology.
