Mesozoic Planktonic Foraminiferal Taxonomic Dictionary
Developed by the Mesozoic Planktonic Foraminiferal Working Group to help users make informed decisions on taxonomic synonymy and validity. It consists of over 470 species records that include original and emended species descriptions, morphologic descriptor fields, synonymy, biostratigraphic range information, original and new images of holotypes, and SEM images that illustrate the morphologic variability of the species concept. Single and multiple taxonomy, morphology, and time/space fields are searchable and can be downloaded in a tab delimited format.

Paleocene Planktonic Foraminiferal Taxonomic Database
This relational database provides customizable search capability for Paleocene planktonic foraminifera, and it primarily consists of images and text from the Atlas of Paleocene Planktonic Foraminifera (R.K. Olsson, C. Hemleben, W.A. Berggren, B.T. Huber, editors, 1999, Smithsonian Contributions to Paleobiology, No. 85). The Paleocene Atlas was prepared between 1987 and 1996 by members of the Paleocene Planktonic Foraminiferal Working Group, who provided taxonomic and biostratigraphic information for 67 species that are considered as senior synonyms. SEM images of 58 primary type specimens are also included along with multiple views of numerous hypotypes for senior and junior synonym species. The database is searchable in single and multiple taxonomy, morphology, and time/space fields and the species records can be downloaded in a tab delimited format. i

Eocene Planktonic Foraminiferal Taxonomic Database
The Eocene Planktonic Foraminiferal Taxonomic Database provides customizable search capability in a relational database format for Eocene planktonic foraminifera. It primarily consists of images and text from the Atlas of Eocene Planktonic Foraminifera (P.N. Pearson, R.K. Olsson, B.T. Huber, C. Hemleben, W.A. Berggren, editors, 2006, Cushman Foundation Special Publication No. 41), which was prepared between 1997 and 2006 by members of the Eocene Planktonic Foraminiferal Working Group, who provided taxonomic and biostratigraphic information for 168 species that are considered as senior synonyms. SEM images of 114 primary type specimens are also included along with multiple views of numerous hypotypes for senior and junior synonym species. The database is searchable in single and multiple taxonomy, morphology, and time/space fields and the species records can be downloaded in a tab delimited format.

HTML Atlas of Paleocene Planktonic Foraminifera
An HTML document that provides online access to text, figures and images that were published in the Atlas of Paleocene Planktonic Foraminifera (R.K. Olsson, C. Hemleben, W.A. Berggren, B.T. Huber, editors, 1999, Smithsonian Contributions to Paleobiology, No. 85). Sixty-seven species of Paleocene planktonic foraminifera are presented with their original species descriptions, remarks, stratigraphic and geographic distributions, and a selection of the most diagnostically representative images. Phylogenetic schemes for the Paleocene planktonic foraminiferal lineages are also presented.

HTML Foraminifera Guide
An HTML-based illustrated guide to the taxonomy, descriptive morphology, and biostratigraphy of Cretaceous planktonic foraminifera. This guide was developed by Dr. Marius Dan Georgescu funded by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and developed at the University of Milan, Italy (2002). It includes a description of 46 genera and 223 species, a key for genus and species identification, and a section on thin-section identification for approximately 80% of the species included. Also included are selected aspects of Cretaceous planktonic foraminiferal evolution and phylogeny.
