Abstract: Evidence suggesting that galaxies in different locations are intrinsically different and have followed different evolutionary paths is reviewed. Consideration is given to morphological segregation of nearby galaxies, of galaxies in clusters, and at supercluster scales. Evidence for and against the classification of SO galaxies as stripped spiral galaxies is examined. Observations of the Virgo cluster and other nearby clusters are used to discuss the influence of environment on the evolutionary history of galaxies.
