Without the invention of the microscope, would the cell theory have been possible?
I don't think it would have been possible because through technology, the microscope, cells were visible. Without the microscope how could scientists have seen cells or discovered the cell theory. Any help, or sites would be greatly appreciated.

  1. It is very unlikely that cell theory would have developed without the invention of the microscope.

    I searched Google under the key words "cell theory" to get these sources:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cell_theory
    http://fig.cox.miami.edu/~cmallery/150/unity/cell.text.htm
    http://www.biology.arizona.edu/cell_bio/tutorials/cells/cells3.html

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
