Summary

Since 2004 the Mesozoic Planktonic Foraminiferal Working Group has been revising the taxonomy and phylogeny of Jurassic-Cretaceous planktonic foraminifera by studying and re-illustrating primary type specimens, documenting stratophenetic changes in wall microstructure and shell morphology, and making paleobiological inferences based on stable isotope analyses. The working group has published results in the peer reviewed literature and has built and updated an online taxonomic atlas as a relational database that is posted on the CHRONOS website (www.chronos.org). The purpose of this meeting is to discuss recent developments in taxonomic and phylogenetic schemes and to establish a detailed framework for publishing a hard copy version of the online taxonomic atlas. Anyone interested in contributing to the taxonomic atlas initiative is welcome to attend.
