Foraminifera Gallery - illustrated catalog
Welcome to the illustrated catalog of the Foraminifera.eu Project, which wants to build a link between science and community.
Send us your sand or rock sample and we extract forams and shoot images for free. Contact us.

This project depends on both of you: Contribute as a scientist  /  Study foraminifera as a non-scientist
      
ISF 7th course
We went to the 6th course and recommend to participate


Foraminifera form a considerable part of Earth biomass and are in the fossil record
since at least 542.000.000 B.C., but are mainly ignored by the public.
With this non-commercial project we want to foster the interest
in these precious and basal forms of life.

Type Specimens
A type specimen is the original specimen from which the description of a new species is made. Thanks to Prof. Michael A. Kaminski and Dr. Claudia G. Cetean we are able to show 64 type specimens in the collections of the Natural History Museum London.   [more]

Plummercell Slide Collection of Karl-Otto Bock
Karl-Otto Bock collects since long foraminifera as a hobby. In the course of time he has produced 150+ plummercell slides. We found a way to bring his slides online showing each single field with just a click.      [Check it out]
