Foraminifera caught my interest. They are precious and their study covers so many areas: From field- to home-work, from rock-formations to photography. SEM and computer -stuff. I like the worldwide foraminiferal community - so help- and thoughtful people. Share may enthusiasm.
The 3rd Course on Foraminifera in Urbino, Italy for 80 international participants is fully booked. The organizer Fabrizio told me, that the advert on foraminifera.eu has been a great help. Last year I participated in the 2nd course with about 25 participants. Read my personal report on this very intense course in the pretty medieval town of Urbino. Consider your participation in the 4th course 2011 :)
Dr. Fabrizio Frontalini has been the first scientific contributor for foraminifera.eu in the very beginning. He sent very nice images from the Adriatic Sea and Venice Lagoon such as this from a Bulimina marginata. Among other subjects he is working on foraminifera as indicators of pollution.
