Duxbury collection

Access high quality colour images and original plates from the Duxbury collection, a catalogue of Cretaceous dinoflagellate cyst specimens.

The database includes the original plates from Duxbury's 1983 publication, along with new:

  • high quality digital images
  • videos of the original specimens
  • Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy (CLSM) images, providing:
    • extended focus images
    • red/green anaglyphs, requiring red/green glasses to appreciate the 3D effect
    • 3D animations
    • animations of the image stack from specimens embedded in a microscope slide

All images and movies have been compressed for display on the web. To play the videos you will need to install the QuickTime plug-in.

The original diagnoses and edits by Duxbury (1983) are included for each taxon, with added notes inferring subsequent changes in taxonomy.
