Two new micropalaeontology papers







Congratulations to Sophie Kendall (left) and Chloe Todd (right) who have both published their MSc research.

Chloe’s project looked at the effect of the late Pliocene environment, when carbon dioxide levels were similar to today, on the size and weight of planktonic foraminifera. Her paper is published in Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology and you can read it here. Chloe is now doing a PhD in Southampton.

Sophie used CT data to study morphological plasticity during the development of the first planktonic foraminifera. Her study is published in theĀ Journal of Micropalaeontology and is available here. Some of her reconstructions are below.
