Synopsis

This site is the definitive resource on the web for images of forams. The virtual gallery is divided into two wings: the cenozoic wing and the mesozoic wing. Inside each wing, there are sets of searchable image catalogues. Intended for the science community, students may need help from the teacher as the search parameters are according to genus, wall type, and chamber arrangement of the forams in the catalogue. But you don't need to be a scientist to simply pick an interesting sounding name and hit search to enjoy the beautiful photos of forams available here.
