The Batsheva de Rothschild Workshop
Live foraminifera as a new model system for monitoring and reconstructing marine environments
9-16 September 2016, Eilat, Israel
Aims and Scope
Today the field of foraminiferal research is extremly diverse and interdisciplinary: New state of the art biological and geochemical methodologies are combined to understand the biogeochemical signals that may be obtained from CaCO3 shells. This meeting is designed to bring together leading foraminiferal researchers with expertise covering ecological, geochemical and physiological disciplines with young researchers and students. We will use this platform to actively collect, observe and experiment with live benthic and planktonic foraminifera. Lectures and discussion will present the recent technological advances, which will allow developing future ideas for multidisciplinary approaches and new collaborations.
We are looking forward to meeting you all in Israel!
