The most famous observation in the field of microscopy made by Robert Hooke was that of discovering plant cells by observing microscopic images of thin slices of cork. As a matter of fact, it was Hooke who came up with the term "cell" based on the boxlike nature of these cells that reminded him of the cells of a 1678, Hooke helped the society of London successfully confirm a report writteng by Leeuwenhoek about bacteria and protozoa, referred to as little animals by then. During this time, Hooke noted that his compound microscope was not as effective as Leeuwenhoek's simple microscopes that gave clearer images even though he found them difficult to use However, Hooker became the first scientist to examine fossils using microscope. He observed that there were some close similarities in structure of fossils and that of petrified wood and also the structure of living wood and that of living mollusk. As a result, Hooke successfully managed to convince scientist thet the fossil were the remains of plants or animals thet existed in past geological ages. The major contibution of Robet Hooke was the discovery of the cell. 1* who? Robert C.

It's also less well known that there is substantial evidence that Hookedeveloped the spring watch escapement, independently of and some fifteeen years before huygens, who is credited for this invention. Hooke also is recognisedfor his work on gravity, and his work as an erchitect and surveyor. Sonia Moncivais Diaz.4th period.November 21, 2014 Biology.
