Morphological space as only one segment of the human space of a man is often the subject of analysis, when one wants to determine the state of the somatic status of certain population. On a sample of 180 male students, of the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport in Eastern Sarajevo using longitudinal research methods, diagnosis of the basic anthropometric characteristics has been made in the function of monitoring the differences of somatic changes, of four different generations from 2008 to 2012 with the aim of determining the differences in the basic anthropometric characteristics. Anthropometric characteristics of the subjects were presented with the following variables: body height expressed in cm, body mass expressed in kg, and body-mass index (BMI), expressed in kg/m². The obtained results showed that in the students of Faculty of physical education and sports during the four-year period, a statistically significant trend differences occurred that have defined substantial heterogeneity of the population. In analyzing the data, using the T-test, the obtained results significantly explain differences in anthropometric characteristics at the level of significance (p<0.01) and for Body Height (T=2.70), Body Weight (T=3.55), BMI (T=1,98). Based on the obtained results, it can be safely argued that the process of growth and development of the student population that enters the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport is heterogeneous and that it is the result of numerous endogenous-exogenous factors during the maturation of an individual.
