This short essay deals with some aspects of biological philosophy; it does not give "factual" results of research in morphology or in ecology. For this I gladly refer to other contributions in this volume. The questions I would like to ask are: What can ecology do for morphology or vice versa, and is there any common structure in both disciplines? At first glance, the subdisciplines of morphology and ecology have very little in common. An analysis of their structure, however, reveals great similarities and small differences. The similarities allow the application of analogous strategies; the differences indicate the specific demands for the procedures. Structuralism seems to be a system applicable to various areas of scientific endeavour.
