About this book


Understanding the relationship between the structures and functions of calcified tissues is essential for an understanding of their pathology. This book emphasises aspects of calcification which are important to humans and presents aspects of current research, notably attempts to relate biological function to the structures and interactions, many chapters stress the importance of the extracellular matrix, and provide links with volumes 5 and 13 in the series Connective Tissue Matrix and Connective Tissue Matrix Part II respectively. Material selected for inclusion in this volume intentionally favour the more physical and physico-chemical aspects of contemporary research.
