Cultivation of symbiont bearing benthic foraminifera: implication for palaeooceanography and the future of the oceans.
Convener: Antonino Briguglio  | Co-Conveners: Johann Hohenegger , Wolfgang Eder , Julia Woeger , Shunichi Kinoshita

We would like to invite scientists dealing with cultivations of larger foraminifera from all over the world. Large effort has been done in the last years trying to cultivate forams in medium to large tanks to observe their behaviour under different environmental conditions to estimate past and future climatic conditions. Ocean acidification related processes as well as temperature and pH changes through time are just two of the many issues we are daily dealing with.
