Calli99 posted a topic in Micro-paleontologyYesterday I was picking through an incredible recent sample from Dogs Bay, Ireland which contains an abundance of foraminifera, ostracods, spicules, gastropods and echinoid spines and have been wondering about how I am going to arrange them on my slides. I am relatively new to microfossils and use microfossil slides with 32 grids. In this instance, is it more common protocol to create separate slides for each type of microfossil (e.g, slide 1: forams, slide 2: ostracods etc.), or to just create a mixed slide that may be more representative and also more interesting to look at but which also makes it harder to logically organise? How do you organise your microfossils on your slides? I hope my question made sense, thanks!
HI all, You know those neat microscope slide sized microfossil containers with partitions inside to hold dozens of little fossils? I think they are covered with glass too and have a black background. Where would I buy such a thing? or is it easy to make them? Your thoughts?
