A change in the structure of a specific body tissue. Usually degenerative
A transformation, such as that of magic or by sorcery
A noticeable change in character, appearance, function or condition
A change in the form and often habits of an animal after the embryonic stage during normal development. (e.g. the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly or a tadpole into a frog.)
a passing from one form or shape into another
{n} a transformation, a change
A change in form during development Simple metamorphosis has three stages: egg, nymph, adult Complex metamorphosis has four stages: egg, larvae, pupa, adult
An image-development strategy used to change an image from one form to another
The change of stage in the life of a butterfly
An extreme change in body form from one life stage to the next, as with caterpillar to butterfly or tadpole to frog
A change in the form or function of a living organism, by a natural process of growth or development; as, the metamorphosis of the yolk into the embryo, of a tadpole into a frog, or of a bud into a blossom
"to change" When rocks are put under intense pressure and heat they will change their structure Some bend, other break and still others will melt and resolidify This geological process occurs at the boundaries between existing cooled rock and molten rock
A stage in the LIFE CYCLE of certain animals during which the LARVA rapidly transforms into an adult An example of metamorphosis is the change from CATERPILLAR to adult moth or butterfly
A process of developmental change in insects whereby a larva reaches adulthood only after a radical change
Metamorphosis is the rapid transformation from the larval to the adult form that occurs in the life cycle of many invertebrates and amphibians Examples are the changes from a tadpole to a frog, or from a caterpillar to a butterfly
the marked and rapid transformation of a larva into an adult that occurs in some animals
in insects
The developmental changes in living organisms, such as the successive stages from caterpillar to butterfly or from tadpole to frog
The change of material of one kind into another through the agency of the living organism; metabolism
Abrupt transition between life stages; for example from larval to adult form
change of body shape, e g , the change from a larval form to a juvenile or adult form
a striking change in appearance or character or circumstances; "the metamorphosis of the old house into something new and exciting"
Transformation, with the implication that the change is so abrupt and extreme that it is made as if by magic
In these intermediate stages sexual reproduction is usually impossible, but they ultimately pass into final and sexually developed forms, from the union of which organisms are produced which pass through the same cycle of changes
The transformation from the larval to the adult stage
{i} change in form or structure; result of a complete change in appearance; change or succession of changes in an organism which enables it to survive in a new environment (Zoology); change in form or function of a plant during its development (Botany)
Change of form, or structure; transformation
The change from egg to adult Incomplete metamorphosis has three stages: egg, nymph, and adult Complete metamorphosis has four stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult
When a metamorphosis occurs, a person or thing develops and changes into something completely different. his metamorphosis from a republican to a democrat = transformation. In biology, any striking developmental change of an animal's form or structure, accompanied by physiological, biochemical, and behavioral changes. The best-known examples occur among insects, which may exhibit complete or incomplete metamorphosis (see nymph). The complete metamorphosis of butterflies, moths, and some other insects involves four stages: egg, larva (caterpillar), pupa (chrysalis or cocoon), and adult. The change from tadpole to frog is an example of metamorphosis among amphibians; some echinoderms, crustaceans, mollusks, and tunicates also undergo metamorphosis
In insects, the change from juvenile to adult form involving the reorganization of body tissue
a complete change of physical form or substance especially as by magic or witchcraft the marked and rapid transformation of a larva into an adult that occurs in some animals
The process by which glyphs are rearranged, substituted, deleted, and inserted based upon their properties and contextual states
Especially, that form of sexual reproduction in which an embryo undergoes a series of marked changes of external form, as the chrysalis stage, pupa stage, etc
Greek for the Transfiguration
a complete change of physical form or substance especially as by magic or witchcraft
The changing of a body's form and appearance This is usually from a larval stage to adult Examples of metamorphosis, or transformation, are caterpillars to butterflies and tadpoles to frogs
the changes an insect goes through as it passes from the egg through the adult stage Complete metamorphosis is development from egg to larva to pupa to adult Gradual metamorphosis is development from egg to nymph to adult
Change in physical form, structure or substance
Third-person singular simple present indicative form of metamorphose
plural form of metamorphosis
complete metamorphosis
The complete form of metamorphosis in which an insect passes through four separate stages of growth, as embryo, larva, pupa, and imago. Also called holometabolism
incomplete metamorphosis
A life cycle of certain insects, such as crickets and grasshoppers, characterized by the absence of a pupal stage between the immature and adult stages
plural of metamorphosis
third-person singular of metamorphose
underwent metamorphosis
changed completely, changed his image
