Living Organisms Consist Of Cells

Cells are very small, most are too small to be seen with the naked eye and certainly not in any detail. In order to investigate cells, we need to be able to produce images that are both enlarged and more detailed.

Microscopes enable us to do this.The results form our microscopic investigations have enabled us to understand how the structure of cell parts allow them to carry out functions.
