dc.description.abstractBarnacles are found throughout the world’s oceans, and their success depends on a hard, mineralized, outer shell that protects the soft tissue. Prevention and removal of barnacles from vessels and structures in the ocean costs maritime industries hundreds of millions of dollars per year. Yet, little is known about the shell formation process, particularly early in the developmental sequence. The objective of this study is to identify the composition, structure, and materials properties of the barnacle exoskeleton immediately following metamorphosis and to assess the effect of growth environment on these properties.en_US
