Ernest E.

Ernest Everett Just was a pioneering biologist, academic and science writer.
Just's primary legacy is his recognition of the fundamental role of the cell surface in the development of organisms.
In his work within marine biology, cytology and parthenogenesis,
he advocated the study of whole cells under normal conditions, rather than simply breaking them apart in a laboratory setting.
