Elie Metchnikoff (1845-1916), winner of the Nobel Prize in 1907 for his contributions to immunology, used to be first a comparative zoologist, who, operating within the wake of Darwin's On the beginning ofSpecies, made seminal contributions to evolutionary biology. His paintings in comparative embryology is healthier identified in regard to the debates with Ernst Haeckel pertaining to animal genealogical relationships and the theoretical origins of metazoans. yet self reliant of these polemics, Metchnikoff constructed his `phagocytosis concept' of immunity because of his early comparative embryology examine, and in basic terms in interpreting the entire breadth of his paintings will we delight in his sign originality.
