Comments Off on Obituary for Professor Martin Brasier


April 12, 1947 –  December 16, 2014


It is with great sadness we heard of the sudden and tragic death of Professor Martin Brasier. Martin was heavily involved in the early days of BMS (as TMS was previously known) as newsletter editor and in the foram group.

We have included a brief obituary notice from Oxford University and will be producing an obituary (in the newsletter & website) highlighting Martin’s contribution to Micropalaeontology. Read more
