Carbonate Platform structures: elements and interactions is a suite of thirteen papers, plus an creation, about the results of organism-environment interactions in sleek and historical carbonate systems, coming up from the Lyell assembly on 'Organism-Environment Feedbacks in Carbonate systems and Reefs' held on the Geological Society, united kingdom. The papers awarded the following supply an built-in view of carbonate systems, emphasizing dynamic interactions in any respect hierarchical degrees and revealing the constraints of uniformitarian analogy in biotically motivated sedimentary structures. chosen case stories from worldwide illustrate features starting from the genesis of development materials to altering styles of carbonate platform improvement. The textual content should be of curiosity to sedimentologists, palaeontologists and marine ecologists alike.
Readership: Sedimentologists, Palaeontologists, Marine Ecologists, Petroleum Exploration & creation Geologists and Marine Environmental Conservationists.

Given the outstanding role and influence of bioerosion on framework morphology, community composition and sediment production, Modern conditions are therefore poor analogues for the structure and function of pre-Neogene reef systems.
