When did Robert Brown discovered the nucleus of the cell?
Cell nucleus discovery . The question is debatable as Thonius Philips van Leeuwenhoek (October 24, 1632 - August 30, 1723 )1, Dutch scientist first observed the cell nuleu…s. "In 1682 he clearly described the nucleus within the red blood cells of fish, and in 1683 he noticed the sedimentation of erythrocytes from a suspension and their lysis upon addition of water."2. It was Robert Brown (December 21, 1773-June 10, 1858) 3 a Scottish Botanist who observed and gave the name "cell nucleus". Brown, is best known for the discovery of Brownian motion random movement within fluids due to molecular energy of fluid and also used as a mathematical model for Stochastic processes (random i.e. financial markets, atmospheric events). 2,4 Some sources site Brown and not van Leeuwenhoek as the discoverer. 5 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_van_Leeuwenhoek 1 . http://www.bookrags.com/Anton_van_Leeuwenhoek 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Brown_(botanist) 3 http://www.brianjford.com/wbbrowna.htm 4 http://science.discovery.com/convergence/100discoveries/big100/biology.html 5
Robert Brown 1773-1858, Scottish botanist and botanical explorer. In 1801 he went as a naturalist on one of Matthew Flinders's expeditions to Australia, returning (1805) to En…gland with valuable collections. In his Prodromus florae Novae Hollandiae et Insulae Van Diemen (1810) he described Australian flora. A leading botanist of his day, he served as librarian to the Linnaean Society and to Sir Joseph Banks and later as curator at the British Museum. He observed http://wiki.answers.com/doc/1E1-Brownian.html in 1827, discovered the cell nucleus in 1831, and was the first to recognize gymnosperm as a distinct angiosperm. His studies of several plant families and of pollen were also notable.
well he was really looking at cork then he discovered similar compartments and named them cells
Robert Hooke (1635-1703), anEnglishman , first discovered the cell in 1664 whileexamining a slice of cork under a microscope . Hooke observed thata slice of cork is made …up of tiny honey-comb like compartments,arranged one on top of the other. He called these compartments 'CELL '. It was much later that scientists discovered thatliving things are made up of cells .
hooke discovered cells in England in 1665
He discovered it with one of those old microscopes
He discovered it in 1831
Robert Brown in 1831. Hope this helps! -Zoey Brown
Nucleus was first studied in orchid root cells by Robert Brown in 1831.
cell discovery: cell was discovered by Robert hooke in 1665.As he was observing a piece of cork under the microscope he noticed small chambers like honey comb in them.those… chambers were called cells by ROBERT BROWN.Later another scientist ROBERT BROWN discovered the nucleus in the cell of orchid. A German scientist SHWANN discovered the animal cell with nucleus.
It Was Robert brown,a scottish botanist.

He discovered the cell nucleus within cells as one of his major accomplishments
comes from the latin term 'blur' as he coud not see this bluring object clearly when under the microscope.
It should have been a light microscope considering the period of time he lived in.
