MetadataShow full item record
The report presents personal recollections of thirty-five years of dinoflagellate and acritarch meetings as presented at the Sixth International Conference on Modern and Fossil Dinoflagellates in Trondheim, June 7-12 1998. The review is based very largely upon personal diary notes, covering the early CIMPA meetings (1963-1966), happenings in the United States in 1968, International meetings in Europe (1969-1974), a gathering in Canada in 1976, the Penrose and Hexrose conferences from 1978 to 1981 (the meetings which later became the Dino l and Dino 2 events) and more recent P C meetings and Conferences on Modern andFossil Dinoflagellates. The informal history, enlivened with anecdotes and personal opinions, is accompanied by a bibliography listing references to publications of special relevance to the history of palynology and by fourteen plates showing some of the scientists prominent in the history of dinoflagellate research.
