PaleoBase Microfossils represents a unique combination of up-to-date systematic information on an extensive collection of microfossil genera, state-of-the-art color digital photographs of representative specimens from The Natural History Museum's unrivalled paleontological collections, and modern relational database technology. PaleoBase Microfossils provides an important new tool for the teaching of life history in a wide variety of advanced secondary, undergraduate, and graduate courses (e.g., paleontology, historical geology, stratigraphy, paleoceanography, paleobiogeography). Instructors will find the database a rich resource for lecture presentations, discussions, and laboratory exercises. Students will find PaleoBase Microfossils an invaluable addition to traditional textbooks, and a key reference source for basic systematic paleontology. * High-quality zoomable digital images * Complete systematic, life-habit and paleoecological descriptions by taxonomic specialists from The Natural History Museum, London * Chronostratigraphic and paleogeographic distribution * Glossary of terms and bibliography * Full search either by name, age, chronostratigraphy, or morphology * Morphological keys and labelled images PaleoBase Microfossils contains over 1000 images records for over 400 genera from the following groups: Foraminifera, Calcareous nannofossils, Ostracods, Radiolaria, Conodonts, Diatoms, Spores and Pollen, Pyrrophyts, Actritarchs, Calcareous Algae, Chitinozoa, and Silicoflagellates.The product can be used as a supplement to the textbook Microfossils by Brasier and Armstrong, as a stand-alone resource, or in conjunction with other books or lecture notes.

From the Back Cover:

Microfossils is the definitive guide to all the major microfossil groups. In recent years a greater understanding of species’ concepts and stratigraphical ranges, advances in the completeness of the microfossil record and the advent of molecular techniques in classification have led to major changes in the classification and applications of microfossils. This new edition of Microfossils has been restructured and rewritten to take into account these significant advances to provide a complete guide to taxonomy, phylogeny, ecology and palaeoecology of microfossils and their applications.

This new edition includes:

  • major revisions incorporating the latest available research
  • a new section on isotopes, and on applications in stratigraphy, geothermometry and evolution
  • coverage of the major developments in the use of microfossils in palaeo-oceanography and palaeoclimatology
  • photographs to support the line drawings

Microfossils is an essential reference tool and laboratory guide for undergraduate and graduate students of micropalaeontology.
