Olsson publishes new Atlas of Oligocene Planktonic Foraminifera


Congratulations to Emeritus Professor Richard Olsson and co-authors on their recent book, Atlas of Oligocene Planktonic Foraminifera!  This is the third book in a larger series, and follows atlases on the Paleocene (by Olsson and others, 1999) and the Eocene. This Special Publication provides updates the taxonomy, paleoecology, phylogeny, and biostratigraphy of the diverse groups of Oligocene planktonic foraminifera, and will serve as an invaluable guide for paleontologists focusing on this epoch in Earth history.
