Abstract: From a biomineralization point of view, the protist world is far less investigated than its metazoan counterpart. However, eukaryotic...

Abstract: Underwater attachment is a significant challenge, for which we have no good general solutions in our technology. Yet, a number of biological...

Abstract: The surface membrane is a lamellar structure exclusive of gastropods that is formed during the shell secretion. It protects the surface of...

Abstract: To infer the early evolution of mollusc shell microstructures we must know the most ancient fossil record of molluscs. Fortunately the...
