A four times continuously differentiable complex valued function F = u + iv in a simply connected domain Ω is biharmonic if the laplacian of F is harmonic. Every biharmonic mapping F in Ω has the representation F = |z|^2 G + K, where G and K are harmonic in Ω. This paper investigates the relationship between the univalence of F and of K using the concept of linearly connected domains.
