Composition Systematics in the Exoskeleton of the American Lobster, Homarus americanus and Implications for Malacostraca
Studies of biominerals from the exoskeletons of lobsters and other crustaceans report chemical heterogeneities across disparate body parts that have prevented the development of composition-based environmental proxy models. ...
Biomineralization by particle attachment in early animals
(National Academy of Sciences, 2019-08-19)
Crystallization by particle attachment (CPA) of amorphous precursors has been demonstrated in modern biomineralized skeletons across a broad phylogenetic range of animals. Precisely the same precursors, hydrated (ACC-H₂O) ...
