    Abstract

    The nature and function of iron biominerals, particularly ferrihydrite (5Fe(2)O(3). 9H(2)O) and goethite (alpha-FeOOH), in medicine and the environment are reviewed through three case studies: the tissue iron deposits formed in the iron overload associated with the genetic disease of thalassemia, a medical condition of global significance; the tissue iron deposits formed in the liver of the endangered tropical marine mammal, the dugong Dugong dugon; the granules formed in the tissue of the freshwater mussel Velusunio angasi.
