Foram Gallery

We are presenting a new micropaleo web site devoted to Arctic foraminifera. The page contains ca 50 Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) images for 18 common Arctic foram species. We’ll keep uploading new images and plan to expand on distribution charts and data tables. Comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
