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.
in the mail these days was a little box from Adrian, UK - a long time contributor to the Foraminifera.eu project.
The box contains a couple of small bags with sand. A closer look through the binocular reveals that these sands mainly consist of shells, tests and fragments of bigger organism-remnants. These sands are rich in foraminifera. My estimate is that there are hundreds if not thousands of forams in each tiny bag.
The forams lived once in Scotland, Tenerife, Malta, Crete and Bermuda.
