The international organization of vertebrate morphologists has grown in both size and scope. Trends over the last few years show particular blossoming in three areas. First, computer modeling of animal function is no longer a sideline hobby, but rather is an essential approach to be combined with experimental and comparative observations. Second, the nervous system is a hotbed of research activity, with special progress in synthetic studies and in coupling cybernetics to animal mechanics. Finally, there is a new and pervasive emphasis on ontogeny and growth, and how they can be regulated at all stages of vertebrate life.
