Study Notes

Cell Theory

  • Robert Hooke was the first person to describe and coin the term 'cell' in 1665.
  • Rudolf Virchow proposed that cells arise from pre-existing cells, contradicting the theory of spontaneous generation.
  • Rudolf Virchow was accused of plagiarism by Matthias Schleiden.

Cell Formation

  • Matthias Schleiden and Theodor Schwann proposed that cells are the basic units of life and that all living organisms are composed of cells.

Plant Structure

  • The main function of a leaf is to carry out photosynthesis.
  • According to the Cell Theory, cells are responsible for reproduction, growth, and maintenance of living organisms.
  • The two types of compound leaves mentioned are palmate and pinnate leaves.

Leaf Structure

  • The midrib is the main vein in a simple leaf (dicot) that provides structural support and transports water and nutrients.
  • The horse chestnut is an example of a palmately compound leaf.
  • Reticulate venation is the type of venation where leaf veins form a net-like pattern.
