Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the */International School on 
Foraminifera/* will organize the */13^th Course/*, which will be held in 
Urbino (Italy) on */3^rd – 22^th June 2020/*.

This eighteen-day intensive course is specifically designed to provide 
an overview of the Taxonomy, Ecology, Biodiversity, and Geological 
History of Benthic and Planktonic Foraminifera. The course is intended 
for students interested in Micropalaeontology, Paleoceanography, 
Paleoecology, Climate History, Biology, and Environmental and industrial 
applications. The course

consists of lectures and practical classes covering the taxonomy, 
distribution, ecology, and paleoecology of foraminifera. Microscope lab 
sessions provide the opportunity for participants to learn the 
foraminiferal genera and species, and view Cretaceous to Neogene 
foraminiferal assemblages from Petroleum Exploration areas and ODP sites 
as well as Quaternary and modern assemblages. At the end of each lecture 
session, different tasks will be assigned to participants to reinforce 
the knowledge learned. Course materials include the lecture PowerPoint 
and numerous pdf reprints of classic papers.

The 13^th ISF will be structured in four parts: Foraminiferal 
Introduction (4-8 June), Larger Benthic Foraminiferal Course (9-12 
June), Smaller Benthic Foraminiferal Course (14-18 June) and Planktonic 
Foraminiferal Course (19-22 June).

Applications for this year’s course are now being accepted. Course
