About this book


This book is a sequel to Volume 5 of the series, Connective Tissue Matrix. The emphasis in the present volume is on changes which occur in connective tissue matrix and how its components influence biological properties. Changes include alteration of structure and loss of fluid, in response to mechanical loading, and biological changes occurring during development, degeneration and ageing. The chapters illustrate the wide range of disciplines involved in current research but are not intended to provide a comprehensive review of the subject. Volume 11 of the series, Calcified Tissue, deals with related tissues whose composition and properties are modified by calcification.
