NannoTalks Volume 2
Apr 19 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The International Nannoplankton Association (INA) is happy to announce NannoTalks Volume 2, starting Monday 19th April at 15:00 UTC. Tune in to our transmission on YouTube at

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSj27AawGmQ

Our first talk will be the Role of silicon in the development of complex crystal shapes in coccolithophores by Gerald Langer. The development of calcification by the coccolithophores had a profound impact on ocean carbon cycling, but the evolutionary steps leading to the formation of these complex biomineralized structures are not clear. Advanced microscopic studies help to understand how these tiny microorganisms calcify and how some coccolithophore species recruit silicon for crystal morphogenesis.

TMS Meetings and Sponsored / Related Meetings

TMS is involved in organising a variety of meetings. The AGM of the society is held each Autumn and the society participates in organising a range of events and meetings with other palaeontological organisations. The constituent specialist groups of TMS also organise their own meetings, generally involving (but not limited to) an annual event in the Spring/Summer. Links to the pages for each of these groups of events can be found below.

 Lyell meetings

TMS collaborates, via the Joint Council for Palaeontology, with the Geological Society of London, the Palaeontological Association and the Palaeontographical Society to organise the annual Lyell Meetings. The themes of these are different each year, but the overall concept is to highlight the role of palaeontology in the earth sciences.

Group meetings

Group meetings are held regularly throughout the year. For details of these you should refer to the individual Specialist Group (ForaminiferaMicrovertebrateOstracodPalynologyNannofossilSilicofossil)

Previous TMS AGMs and other whole society meetings

Information on the coming years AGM will be placed on these page at the relevant time. Information on previous TMS AGMs and other meetings is available here

Events code of conduct

All participants at our events are asked to sign up to a code of conduct as a requirement for attending.
