Collections

The European Micropalaeontological Reference Centre (EMRC) - a permanent archive for published microfossil collections.

Our microfossil collections are growing, thanks to several valuable donations. We currently have over 20 cabinets of archived microscope slides, mostly benthic foraminifera from Poland (collections of Irena Heller and Ewa Luczkowska); Paleozoic foraminifera and ostracods (collections of Hans-Günther Eickhoff and Zofia Alexandrowicz); from IODP sites in the Arctic, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans; and from exploration wells in the Boreal seas (collections of Mike Kaminski, Eiichi Setoyama, Vera Podobina, Felix Gradstein and Jeno Nagy). We have a separate collection of type specimens of species (holotypes and paratypes). The archived slides are arranged according to the publications in which the faunas were described.

  • We have microfossil slide collections relating to the following publications:

Currently our collections include:

  • Benthic foraminifera from Poland (the collection of Irena Heller from the Polish oil company GEONAFTA;
  • Paratethyan Foraminifera (the collection of Prof. Ewa Luczkowska)
  • DSDP and ODP sites in the Indian Ocean (collection of Ann Holborn)
  • IODP sites in the Arctic, North Atlantic, Norwegian Sea, Bering Sea (Collection of Mike Kaminski);
  • Exploration wells in the Boreal seas: North Sea, Western Barents Sea, Labrador Sea (collections of Felix Gradstein, Mike Kaminski, Jeno Nagy, Vera Podobina, Eiichi Setoyama);
  • Paleozoic microfossils from Germany, Poland, and the USA (the collections of Dr. Günther Eickhoff and Dr. Zofia Alexandrowicz).
  • Offshore Angola; Gulf of Mexico, Trinidad; Polish Carpathians, Transylvania;
  • We have a separate collection of type specimens of species (holotypes, paratypes, metatypes)

We are continuously expanding our collections. We are adding more capacity for storing additional collections, and we gladly accept archive collections (type specimens, or faunal slides relating to published studies).
