Ernst Haeckel was an embryologist, or a scientist who studies embryos. He is most famous for an observation of embryos used to compare the development of embryos to the process of macro-evolution. Allegedly he compromised the integrity of the experiment by assuming some phases instead of drawing them from observation in order to save time.
