Direct development is the process of development in which any larval stage is absent, which means metamorphosis is not present, offsprings are produced directly. The new borns are similar to their parents in morphology and feeding habits.For e.g. Human beings, Birds, Fishes.Indirect development is the process of development in which the embryo develops into larvae before developing into a mature organism, which means metamorphosis is present and the new borns are different from their parents in morphology and feeding habits. For e.g.  Toads which are born as tadpoles, Butterflies which are born as caterpillars.
