By Hermann Ehrlich

this is often the second one monograph via the writer on organic fabrics of marine beginning. The preliminary ebook is devoted to the organic fabrics of marine invertebrates. This paintings is a resource of contemporary wisdom on biomineralization, biomimetics and fabrics technology with admire to marine vertebrates. For the 1st time in clinical literature the writer supplies the main coherent research of the character, beginning and evolution of biocomposites and biopolymers remoted from and saw within the wide number of marine vertebrate organisms (fish, reptilian, birds and mammals) and inside their certain hierarchically equipped structural formations. there's a wealth of latest and newly synthesized details, together with dozens of formerly unpublished photos of certain marine creatures together with extinct, extant and dwelling taxa and their biocomposite-based buildings from nano- to micro – and macroscale. This monograph reports the main proper advances within the marine organic fabrics learn box, declaring a number of techniques being brought and explored by way of exact smooth laboratories.
