Former Aberystwyth microfossil collection

A catalogue of information about discrete collections within the Former Aberystwyth University Micropalaeontology Collection, now housed the Natural History Museum.

The catalogue is designed for university academics and industrial micropalaeontologists interested in post-Palaeozoic ostracods and foraminifera.

Collection records generally include:

  • the title of the study that produced the collection
  • information about the collector
  • any associated documentation (e.g. thesis, record file or publications) held at the Museum.
  • brief geological ages based on the Gradstein et al. (1996) geological timescale
  • locality information.

The database is searchable by surname, year, fossil type, collector, country/sea/ocean, or by stratigraphical unit.
