The evolutionary history of biomineralization in animals is crucial to our understanding of modern mineralized tissues. Traditional methods of unravelling this history have aimed to derive a theory of the development of biomineralization through evolution by the comparison of mineralized systems in model organisms. This has led to the recognition of the ‘biomineralization toolkit’ and raised the question of the homology of mineralized tissues versus convergent or parallel evolution. The ‘new… Expand
