William Harvey was the first scientist to definitely contradict the theory of spontaneous generation. His doctrine was omne vivum ex ovo (all life comes from eggs). After De Motu Cordis, in 1651 he published Exercitationes de generatione animalium on the generation of animals, that is, embryogenesis.
