"Trembley discovered the hydra and was the first to observe in it asexual reproduction, regeneratio, and photosensitivity in an animal without eyes. His experiments were of great importance in the study of regeneration of lost parts. He was the first to make permanent grafts and to witness cell-division." G&M 307
