This first comprehensive overview of the modern aspects of biomineralization represents life and materials science at its best: Bioinspired pathways are the hot topics in many disciplines and this holds especially true for biomineralization.

Here, the editors – well–known members of associations and prestigious institutes – have assembled an international team of renowned authors to provide first–hand research results.

This third volume deals with biomineralization in medicine, paying closer attention to bones, teeth and pathological calcifications.

An interdisciplinary must–have account, for biochemists, bioinorganic chemists, lecturers in chemistry and biochemistry, materials scientists, biologists, and solid state physicists.
