PALEONTOLOGÍA PART I - REINO PROTISTA Y FUNGI . Los reinos de la naturaleza se clasifican en: - Monera: son los seres mas antiguos. Son organismos formados por una célula(unicelular) y de estructura simple. En este grupo encontramos las bacterias y algunas algas. - Fungi: Estos organismos se pueden encontrar en el suelo, agua, los organismos en descomposición e incluso en la piel humana. Entre ellos están los mohos, levaduras y setas. - Protista: los protozoos y algas unicelulares y pluricelulares pertenecen a este reino. - Plantae: son organismos pluricelulares que realizan FOTOSÍNTESIS; gracias a la clorofila captan la energía solar y junto con la sustancias nutritivas que toman del suelo las transforman en alimento. - Animalia: Seres pluricelulares, se alimentan de otros seres, por ende, heterótropos sketchofgelogy paleontology foraminifera fosil fungi amanita

Forams tell many stories. Their shell shape and chemistry can be used to reconstruct past climate, carbon cycles, ocean currents, types of environments, continental weathering cycles, and of course, to determine relative age 🌏 This picture shows a benthic foram within Otekaike Limestone, sampled near Oamaru, North Otago, New Zealand. foram foraminifera paleontology sedimentology

Дорогие мои читатели. А Вы когда-нибудь думали, что очень многие моменты в жизни у нас связываются с музыкой? Иногда, чтобы узнать человека, нужно узнать его вкусы( Мои вкусы очень специфичны. (с))😁 😁 😁 Нет, я не собираюсь пиарить Монеточку, Элджея, Федука(наверно больше и не знаю из новых никого🤣🤣🤣), я пишу о мало известных композиторах, певцах и певицах. Хороших и не очень. Рассказываю, как они пришли в мою жизнь( здарова моябиографияпосубботам ). Там можно ещё больше погрузиться в мой мир, теперь и посредствам музыки(теперь банановый🤣🤣🤣) . Если эта сторона жизни Вам интересна, милости просим, читать и слушать. 😁 Ссылку оставлю в шапке профиля, ну и поиск, я думаю мало таких имён. музыкаижизнь познакомимсяпоближе foraminifera globigerina

- estereomicroscopia - Foraminíferos analisados em amostra de areia. O que a imagem mostra são testas ("carapaças") extracelulares de material orgânico, normalmente carbonato de cálcio. Podem ser facilmente confundidas. E não são vistas a olho nu! Porém ainda mais difícil que achar essas belezuras, foi conseguir tirar uma foto. E o Instagram ainda tira toda a qualidade. foraminifera protozoa paleontology

This is a type of fossil foraminifera—a tiny shelled animal that lived on the sea floor. But here, so much iron-sulfide has built up inside that it has destroyed his shell! How did that happen? The space in the chambers left when the animal dies provide an ideal space for bacteria to grow. These bacteria would normally use oxygen to live, but when there is none, they process sulphates instead. This process sets off a chain reaction that results in the increase of these iron-sulfides in the shell. Not helpful for studies – but great for pictures.

How many fossils can you count? How many of the Early Cretaceous-aged, Lower Glen Rose Formation index fossil Orbitolina texana (see previous post for appearance) do you see? This is how they can be found in the field, by the hundreds if not thousands, in the soil, weathered out of the limestone. Tip of rock hammer for scale, so field of view is only about 3-4 inches (8-10 cm) square. txhillcountry hillcountry hillcountrytx texashillcountry hillcountrytexas tarpleytexas banderatexas banderacounty cretaceous glenrose glenroseformation foraminifera orbitolina orbitolinatexana texas paleontology microfossils earthhistory micropaleontology fossils fossilsoftexas texasfossils fossilsofinstagram geology geologists geologistsofinstagram historicalgeology lifeofariggirl

The index or guide fossil for the Early Cretaceous-aged, Lower Glen Rose Formation of the Trinity Group, central Texas. When you find this fossil, you know you're in the Glen Rose. It's an unusually large foraminifera called Orbitlolina texana. (I like to think of foraminifera as amoeba that can secrete a calcareous shell.) A lot of the Texas fossils I post are from the Glen Rose. Plus, all of the dinosaur footprints I know of in Texas are from the Glen Rose Formation Photos 1 and 2 are close-up cellphone pics of Orbitolina texana. The middle one in Photo 1 is about 5mm in diameter. You can see a hint of the internal structure on the exterior of the fossils. These readily weather out of the limestone, and in places can be collected from the soil by the thousands Pics 3 and 4 are illustrations from USGS Professional Paper 333, "The Foraminiferal Genus Orbitolina in North America," 1960. I think it is incredible that a single-celled blob of protoplasm can create a shell of such amazing internal architecture Image 5 is a geologic map of Texas. The Trinity Group is colored a dark olive green, and outcrops are found in a few dozen Texas counties txhillcountry hillcountry hillcountrytx texashillcountry hillcountrytexas cretaceous cretaceousfossils cretaceousoftexas fossils glenrose fossilsoftexas flowersofinstagram glenroseformation dinosaurs dinosaurfootprints foraminifera microfossils paleontology fossilfriday indexfossil guidefossil micropaleontology geology geologists geologistsofinstagram texas lifeofariggirl

Reposted from foramhanna - SEM today! My tiny calcareous forams needed a little special attention since they are so small, the poor things. SEM stands for scanning electron microscope, which scans the surface of a fossil or an item with a focused beam of electrons. This produces a picture which shows the topography of the item in a highly detailed way.

Campione di calcare a Nummuliti (Monti della Majella, Abruzzo).⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I nummuliti (nummulites) è un genere di foraminiferi, organismi marini unicellulari, che⠀ rientra nella categoria dei macroforaminiferi, cioè dei foraminiferi di notevoli dimensioni che possono essere osservati ad occhio nudo, senza l’ausilio di un microscopio. Le loro dimensioni infatti variano da qualche millimetro alla decina di centimetri. Il nome nummuliti deriva dalle parole latine “nummus” che significa "moneta" e “lithos” che significa "pietra". Difatti l’aspetto del guscio di questi fossili ricorda la forma di una moneta. Dalla sezione di questi fossili si può osservare la loro struttura interna (visibile anche in foto). Il loro guscio calcareo è avvolto in una spirale, suddivisa in camere tramite setti trasversali.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ fossilfriday fossil fossils fossile fossili foraminiferi foraminifera nummulites nummulite sedimentary rocks rocce roccesedimentarie carbonate carbonaterocks roccecalcaree samples campione paleontologia paloentology geologia geology monti majella mountains abruzzo italia italy⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 📷 © C.

Repost from foramhanna - My second paper is back from review, I'm preparing for two presentations, selecting forams for an SEM session, and samples still need to be picked and analysed for my third paper! I am thoroughly enjoying reading the comments from the reviewers because they are so insightful and relevant. It might be because it's a small field and I got one of the most heavily referenced person in my paper as a reviewer. Who cares if I might end up editing my database and having to re-do almost all of my figures! *cold sweat* 🤣😨 micropaleontology geologyrocks foraminifera foram fossils phdlife stratigraphy naturalscience biostratigraphy arcticgeology unisvalbard womeninscience graduateschool gradstudent graduatestudent gradschool phdstudent paperrevision

Another night of biosteering ahead! 👩‍🔬 We're drilling away in a reservoir almost 2 miles below the sea bed and I'm using fossils to help steer horizontally through the formation. The fossils can tell us if the drill bit is too shallow (younger sediments) or too deep (older sediments)! The fossils tonight are all ~70 million years old!

Foraminiferans are ameboid protists that build shells. These shells can be sophisticated and beautiful. They are tiny like the smallest grains of sand, and still you can see them if you have a really good vision or with a help of a microscope. Some foraminiferans build giant shells of a size of a coin. These ones mounted on glass slides are from Cambridge collection, and the last photos show samples from my collection at home. foraminifera protist biology microscopy nature sea ocean

This is an experience of a lifetime. I have never seen a facility with this much lab equipment. I had several kid in a candy store gasp moments. Some of these photos are obviously fossils, then you will see some diatoms, forams and a couple sediment cores from Glacier NP. Can you spot the layer of volcanic ash? sediment diatoms foraminifera fossils

Marine foraminifera from deep sediment within Roudsea Woods near the head of the Leven Estuary, Morecambe Bay, North-West England. This region is positioned within a macro-tidal environment, where salt marshes fringe the western region of the estuary behind intertidal flats. Foraminifera are frequently used as environmental indicators as different species are indicative of certain sections of the tidal frame. Agglutinated foraminifera favour upper salt marshes while calcareous foraminifera occupy lower marshes and tidal creeks. foraminifera fossil fossils microfossils marine marinelife microscope geology macro macrophotography macro_captures_ macrovision natgeo natgeoyourshot estuary nature history biodiversity life planetearth lakedistrict paleontology natgeophotos aquaticlife peat biology marineanimals natgeowildlife

Ocean acidification: Anthropocene versus Eocene & Foraminifera Protists. wp.me/p3ihHu-BR scicomm oceans palaeontology micropaleontology forams foraminifera The geological record of ocean acidification may provide valuable insights for the future of Earth’s climate and how marine organisms could adapt to severe conditions. Because the PETM (~56 MDA) is considered the best analog to modern global warming, the changes in the assemblage of calcareous nanoplankton during this event could provide vital clues to the potential response of modern nanoplankton to ocean acidification. The anthropogenic carbon input rate is probably greater than during the PETM, causing a more severe decline in ocean pH and saturation state. Also the biotic consequences of the PETM were fairly minor, while the current rate of species extinction is already 100–1000 times higher than would be considered natural. This underlines the urgency for immediate action on global carbon emission reductions.
