While going through this article, I was curious to read the historical developments. The article on wikipedia on Robert Hooke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Hooke) mentions , "He is also remembered for his work as "the father of microscopy" — it was Hooke who coined the term "cell" to describe the basic unit of life". I am surprised to see this name completely ommited in this article. This creates confusion. What was Robert Hooke's role in microscopy? --59.92.248.137 (talk) 15:20, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
