In 1665, Robert Hooke, an English scientist, reported an interesting observation while looking through his microscope at a cork, "I took a good clear piece of cork, and with a penknife sharpened as keen as a razor, I cut a piece of it off, then examining it with a microscope, me thought I could perceive it to appear a little porous, much like a honeycomb, but that the pores were not regular."
a) What were the honeycomb units at which Hooke was looking?
b) What specific cell part was all that was left of the cork?
