The Micropalaeontological Society


The Society comprises five specialist groups which study Foraminifera, Nannofossils, Ostracods, Palynology, and Silicofossils. Membership in these groups is open and by personal choice. The groups hold separate meetings, including field trips, throughout the year; these are becoming progressively more international in their scope. The Society holds its Annual Conference in November each year.
