Abstract
In general, biomembranes and giant vesicles can respond to cues in their aqueous environment by remodeling their molecular composition, shape, or topology. This themed collection focuses on remodeling of membrane shape which is intimately related to membrane curvature. In this introductory contribution, we clarify the different notions of curvature and describe the general nanoscopic mechanisms for curvature generation and membrane scaffolding. At the end, we give a brief outlook on membrane tension.
