Prograde amphibolite facies to ultrahigh‐pressure transition along Nordfjord, western Norway: Implications for exhumation tectonics
[1] The Nordfjord area of western Norway hosts one of the best known provinces of ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) rocks in the world, yet the nature of the transition from the UHP rocks into surroundingExpand

Putative Nanobacteria Represent Physiological Remnants and Culture By-Products of Normal Calcium Homeostasis
Putative living entities called nanobacteria (NB) are unusual for their small sizes (50–500 nm), pleomorphic nature, and accumulation of hydroxyapatite (HAP), and have been implicated in numerousExpand

Characterization of Granulations of Calcium and Apatite in Serum as Pleomorphic Mineralo-Protein Complexes and as Precursors of Putative Nanobacteria
Calcium and apatite granulations are demonstrated here to form in both human and fetal bovine serum in response to the simple addition of either calcium or phosphate, or a combination of both. TheseExpand

Physicochemical and biological properties of biomimetic mineralo-protein nanoparticles formed spontaneously in biological fluids.
Recent studies indicate that mineral nanoparticles (NPs) form spontaneously in human body fluids. These biological NPs represent mineral precursors that are associated with ectopic calcificationsExpand

The Tymbal Mechanism and Song Patterns of the Bladder Cicada, Cystosoma Saundersii
1. In Cystosoma saundersii sound is generated by collapse of a pair of tymbals and radiated by a large, resonant, air-filled abdomen. Each tymbal comprises a flexible, biconvex membrane bearing sevenExpand

The organization of the auditory organ of the bladder cicada, Cystosoma saundersii
The auditory organ of Cystosoma saundersii consists of 2000-2200 scolopidia arranged in two groups, a dorsal and a ventral group. The dorsal group contains scolopidia orientated along theExpand

Formation and characteristics of biomimetic mineralo-organic particles in natural surface water
Recent studies have shown that nanoparticles exist in environmental water but the formation, characteristics and fate of such particles remain incompletely understood. We show here that surface waterExpand
