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
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.
This is the rescheduled event – hopefully you can still make it.

Dates: 29th Aug – 2 Sep 2021
Location: Avignon, France
