Abstract:

Knowledge of the surrounding living beings and non-living objects starts when we visualize them for the first time. It is only then when we can ask ourselves questions about their nature and function. Answering these questions is the aim of scientific research. Therefore, observation is the foundation of science. The microscopic world remained hidden for humans till the invention of the early optical instruments. Already in ancient times, men had discovered that the image of an object became augmented when looking through a curved glass. The results of archaeological excavations carried out in Nínive (Syria) over the middle of the XIXth century, and where a lens carved in glass rock coming from the XIth century was found, suggest that magnifying glasses were already known and used in the Arab culture of that time. However, the first compound light microscope was first built at the end of the XVIth century or early at the XVIIth century. In the 1970’s decade, microscopy techniques had an enormous diffusion, and were highly appreciated and used routinely in all centres and institutes developing pioneer research. This book displays the history of Microscopy at the Estación Experimental del Zaidín (CSIC) in images over the last 30 years through the scientific contributions of those groups that use these techniques for their research. It also intends to be a little tribute to all the people who contributed with his effort and dedication to the development of Microscopy in the institute.
