Coccolithophores make armoured plates (coccoliths
, hereafter referred to as 'liths') from calcium carbonate, which together form a sort of external skeleton for each organism (Figure 1).

SEM analyses were performed by Zeiss EVO MA 10: a portion of filter membrane was mounted onto a stub for quantitative analysis of coccolith

As soon as they leave the upper ocean where they are produced, almost all of the coccoliths

White discs make up the words, and are said to represent the microscopic coccoliths
