By M. D. Brasier (auth.), Professor F. T. Banner, Dr A. R. Lord (eds.)

This quantity is a set of papers awarded to Professor Tom Barnard through former scholars, colleagues and associates to mark thirty-two years of educating and examine in micropalaeontology at college collage London. this era represents the key a part of Tom Barnard's profession with microfossils, which truly begun particularly previous, yet in 1949 his first postgraduate scholars have been registered. because then a few one hundred fifty scholars have labored for better levels learning foraminifera, ostracods, calcareous nannofossils, dino­ of analysis flagellates and palynomorphs, in corporation with a chain Assistants and traveling Scientists. the character of micropalaeontology at 'UC' less than Tom Barnard has consistently been unashamedly biostratigraphical. accordingly many scholars have entered and proceed to go into the petroleum undefined, now not least of all simply because their mentor has continually had a realistic view of educational examine and its path. regardless of this emphasis, with a specific realization to Mesozoic foraminifera, an important research of modern Caribbean foraminiferal faunas has been performed and so much lately MSc sessions have labored with fabric from the continental shelf of southern Africa. paintings with Mesozoic ostracods was once initiated in 1956 and through the earlier decade an increasing number of scholars have targeting calcareous nannofossils. A e-book sum­ marising the result of biostratigraphical paintings with nannofossils is at this time within the press (Lord, A. R. (ed. ) A stratigraphical index of calcareous nanno­ fossils. Chichester: Ellis Horwood).

Ecomorphology is the comparative learn of the impact of morphology on ecological relationships and the evolutionary effect of ecological components on morphology in several lifestyles durations, populations, species, groups, and evolutionary lineages.

Fire in Ecosystems of Boreal Eurasia

One of many first precedence parts between joint East/West learn courses is the rational use of normal assets and sustainable improvement of areas. within the boreal area of North the United States and Eurasia forests are economically extremely important and, whilst hugely liable to disturbances. as a result of its dimension and ecological capabilities the boreal woodland quarter and its such a lot dynamic disturbance issue - hearth - play an enormous function in environment approaches on international scale.

The classification of the Ataxophragmiidae (Schwager 1877, amended Balahakmatova 1972) is followed, whereby the Globotextulariinae (Cushman 1927) and Valvulininae (Berthelin 1880) are incorporated into the Ataxophragmiinae. In addition, the classification and phylogeny proposed by Barnard and Banner (1981) is compared and contrasted with the scheme followed herein wherever possible.
