The year 1982 is a milestone in Society history as this saw the initiation of the society’s own journal, the Journal of Micropalaeontology, (first edited by Lesley Sheppard).The Journal was initially produced once a year, but since 1984 has become a twice yearly publication of growing international repute.This book unites climate modelling, palaeoceanography and palaeontology to address fundamental events in the climate history of Earth over the past 600 million years.Understanding the ‘tipping points’ that have lead to rapid changes in the Earth’s climate is vitally important with the realization that humans modify global climate.In particular we welcome submissions relating to microfossils and their application to palaeoceanography, palaeoclimatology, palaeobiology, evolution, taxonomy, environmental change and molecular phylogeny.The scope of the journal is broad, demonstrating the application of microfossils to solving broad geoscience issues.Also included are notes from two workshops: culture experiments and dinocysts as palaeoceanographic tracers. This Festschrift, authored by friends and specialists from Britain and France, pays tribute to his often seminal research as well as exhibiting the wide range of his geological interest. More information is available from the Geological Society bookshop.
You will also receive notices of new books published (including any TMS books) and any special promotions. When combined, the spatial and temporal distribution patterns of microfossils offer enormous utility for archaeological and forensic investigations. This TMS Special Publication comprises a collection of 23 papers with an international authorship reflecting on landmarks in the history and development of Foraminiferal micropalaeontology. More information is available from the Geological Society bookshop.The editor and the editorial board will consider for publication original papers and review articles dealing with all aspects of Micropalaeontology.Commercial and ‘situations vacant’ advertisements may be placed in all society publications.From 1973 to 1998, the Society publishend its own micropalaeontographical series: A Stereo-Atlas of Ostracod Shells, (first produced in 1973, edited by Professor Peter Sylvester-Bradley and Dr David Siveter of Leicester University), it also produces an occasional series of field guides. The newsletter was renamed Newsletter of Micropalaeontology in 1995.The BMS produced a circular until 1976, when the Newsletter was inaugurated, as The British Micropalaeontologist, first edited by P. The first BMS publication (apart from the A Stereo-Atlas of Ostracod Shells) was A Stratigraphical Index of British Ostracoda (edited by Ray Bate and Eric Robinson) which appeared in 1978 and was published as a Special Issue of Geological Journal.
