Considering that the Cambrian sea was extremely mineral-rich, and inarguably caused the build-up of both massive geological and biogenic mineral deposits, it is tempting to speculate that early biomineralizing organisms tried to escape mineralization and hence enmuring by precipitating salts. A basic anti-calcifying strategy of secreting… CONTINUE READING
