Abstract/Description

This is probably the first written and relatively accurate description of microorganisms, made by the Roman scholar Marcus Terentius Varro (116-27 B.C.). It was then Anthony van Leeuwenhoek (ca. 1677) who, for the first time, observed little animals under his version of the microscope (a collection of powerful magnifying glasses), and who in a letter to the Royal Society (1683) gave for the first time a description of dental plaque as the first example of what we would now term a microbial biofilm.
