Robert Hooke , FRS (18 July 1635 - 3 March 1703) was an English natural philosopher and polymath who played an important role in the scientific revolution, through both experi…mental and theoretical work.. Hooke is known principally for his law of elasticity (Hooke's Law). 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 - he also assisted Robert Boyle and built the vacuum pumps used in Boyle's gas law experiments. Hooke was an important architect of his time, and a chief surveyor to the City of London after the Great Fire, built some of the earliest Gregorian telescopes, observed the rotations of Mars and Jupiter, and was an early proponent of the theory of evolution through his observations of microscopic fossils. He investigated the phenomenon of refraction, deducing the wave theory of light, and was the first to suggest that matter expands when heated and that air is made of small particles separated by relatively large distances. He also deduced from experiments that gravity follows an inverse square law, and that such a relation governs the motions of the planets, an idea which was subsequently developed by Newton.  Much of Hooke's work was conducted in his capacity as curator of experiments of the Royal Society, a post he held from 1662.. Hooke was, by all accounts, a remarkably industrious man, and was at one time simultaneously the curator of the Royal Society and a member of its council, Gresham Professor of Geometry and Chief Surveyor to the City of London.. Hooke's reputation was largely forgotten during the eighteenth century, and this is popularly attributed to a dispute with Isaac Newton over credit for his work on gravitation; Newton, as President of the Royal Society, did much to obscure Hooke, including, it is said, destroying (or failing to preserve) the only known portrait of the man. Hooke's reputation was revived during the twentieth century through studies of Robert Gunther and Margaret 'Espinasse, and after a long period of relative obscurity he is now recognised as one of the most important scientists of his age.

Robert Hooke is an English scientist, who coined the name "cell". In 1665, Hooke wondered why cork floats easily on water. His curiosity drove him to find the reason for his… observation. He sliced the cork into thin pieces from the bark of an oak tree and studied them under his microscope. He saw tiny pores or compartments glued together, which reminded him an empty rooms monks inhabit in a monastery. He called them cells, from the Latin word cellulae which mean "small room". Hooke most important contribution in Biology:Book of Micrographia - which details his microscopic observation. He described the tiniest components of living plant tissue. He demonstrated the observations of different organisms like sponges, lice, fleas and bird feathers. Robert Hooke, the English father of microscopy, re-confirmed Antony van Leeuwenhoek's discoveries of the existence of tiny living organisms found under the microscope in a drop of water. He confirmed Leeuwenhoek's discovery of animalcules. Hooke was the first person to use the word "cell" to identify microscopic structures when he was describing cork. Hooke also wrote Hooke's Law - a law of elasticity for solid bodies
