(iv)      In plants many dead cells are present, which also have specific function. Vessels and Tracheids of Xylem are dead cells but helps in conduction of water & minerals. In human beings, cells of stratum corneum (outermost layer of skin) are dead & helps in protection.

(v)      It was not discarded but modified by Nageli, he just added "through cell division" while omnis cellula e cellula means that cells arise inside the cell. According to Karl nageli "new syncytes arise from division of pre-existing cells".
