About this book


Comparative investigations of mineralization and demineralization mechanisms by leading researchers give a general perspective on this interdisciplinary field of the life sciences and an introduction to current research methods and concepts. The studies are concentrated in the areas of calcium phosphate mineral formation in vertebrate bone and teeth and calcium carbonate mineral formation in coral skeletons and molluscan shells.
