Growth is also defined as the permanent increase in size of an organism due to increase in number of cells. Growth is brought about by cell division. Growth is one of the hallmarks of a living thing. An organism’s growth may go on throughout its life, or end when that species is fully mature.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Development is the qualitative changes in structure and functions. It is a series of orderly changes by which a living thing comes into maturity. It is a series of changes that occur during growth.
