Welcome to the science-page of Marcos Gektidis. I have specialized on bioerosion and work with microendoliths. The wealth of microendolithic species can be confusing and so I have made an effort to give a taxonomic overview over the most abundant ones world-wide. You will also find my list of publications.

If you cannot see the blinking logo at the top of the page you need the flash-player to visualize the contents of the page.

Have fun exploring the microworld of bioeroders - Marcos Gektidis
