You may be wondering how the cell theory was created? Well let me tell you the answer. By providing some very famous scientists that changed the game in the science world.
In the year of 1665, a man by the name of Robert Hooke published a book called Micrographia. In his research that he used to publish this book he found monk-cell like structure in a cork slice while observing it under a microscope. Hooke also coined the word cell. It is said that he named it a cell because it reminded him of a monk's cell.
Long Live the King and Queen,
In 1833, long after Leeuwenhoek published a letter with drawings of the first protozoa and bacteria. Robert Brown of England discovered that there is a nucleus in plant cells. Unfortunately this great scientist died in 1858, he was 87.
Interesting fact: I catalogued over 1,700 different species of plants
Born in the year 1805 in the country Germany. Matthias Schleiden, a botanist, studied plants and in 1838 he came to a conclusion that cells make up all plants. He worked with the next scientist in this comic. Died in 1881
Professor Matthias Schleiden, if you want to be formal.
Theodor Schwann, also a botanist,going off of fellow German Schleiden's findings, he figured out that plants were not the only one made up of cells. Animal tissue is also made of cells. His discovery ended discussions about animals and plant having differences. Shwann was just 5 years younger than his partner Schlediden, and died a year after as well.
Matthias and are tight
Rudolf Virchow, was a German physiologist, physician, and pathologist. Rudolf was the scientist responsible for adding the 3rd part to the cell theory, which is that all cells come from preexisting cells. Virchow also came across the fact that diseased cells originally come from healthy cells.
