Form the beginning of foraminifera.eu Dieter Ketelsen and me had the idea to build a catalog of North Sea foraminifera. The North Sea sends its waters with the tides to Hamburg and is so to say our "home sea". It is until 2018 that we have more than just beach samples. Stefan Raveling provided samples from within the Wadden Sea and Dr. Hermann Neumann from Senckenberg am Meer, Marine Research Department provided samples from all over the North Sea.
The enlargement of the catalog is an ongoing process. Contributions and participation are welcome. Please contact Michael Hesemann via email: michael [at] foraminifera.eu
