The selection of titles shown above is, unavoidably, somewhat arbitrary and I'm sure I have overlooked many papers worth listing. I have mainly tried to reflect the width of cuticle-related topics rather than attempting  to achieve completeness. Only articles with freely accessible abstracts have been included. Please send suggestions for further listings to g.kerstiens@lancaster.ac.uk.
