The TMS is delighted to announce that the next Foraminifera and Nannofossil spring meeting will be hosted by the University of Birmingham on the 19-21st June 2017.The program will encompass oral presentations and extended posters sessions, an icebreaker reception in the Lapworth Museum of Geology, a conference dinner, as well as an optional field excursion and thematic workshops on Monday 19th June.
The theme for this year’s event is “Life in a Changing Ocean”. We strongly encourage submissions that address the vulnerability and resilience of foraminifera and coccolithophores to environmental change, past and present, as well as the interaction between changing marine environments and evolutionary processes and patterns over long timescales.
