    In 1839, the idea that organisms were made up by like units (cells) was proposed by Theodor Schwann and Matthias Schleiden.  After noticing that each other’s separate findings told that both animal and plant cells had similarities, both became intrigued and wanted to view each other’s data.  As it turned out, the two men found that both plant and animals contained units comprised of nuclei.
