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.
Dr. James E. Conkin and Prof. Barbara M. Conkin gave us specimens and images of Paleozoic foraminifera. Now we integrated some of their images of 350 Mio. year old foraminifera from the Lower Mississippian of Missouri and Illinois, USA. It is planned to work on more Paleozoic foraminifera, though the forms are primitive and not that beautiful as modern ones.
We are very grateful to Michael Popp running the Louisville Fossil Blog who arranged this valuable contact to the Conkins.
