This on-line catalogue is designed for university academics and industrial micropalaeontologists who are interested in post Palaeozoic ostracods and foraminifera. Searching this database gives broad information about discrete collections within the Former Aberystwyth University Micropalaeontology Collection that is now housed at the NHM.
Each collection record gives information about the title of the study that produced the collection, information about the collector and details of the associated documentation (e.g. thesis, record file or publications) held at the NHM. Brief geological ages based on the Gradstein et al. (1996) geological timescale are also given along with very brief locality information. The database is searchable by surname, year, fossil type, collector, country/sea/ocean, or by stratigraphical unit.
