The Mesozoic part of Nannotax was created in March 2011 by uploading of a comprehensive, carefully checked, taxon list produced by Jackie Lees and Paul Bown. We have also added a large number of illustrations from Calcareous Nannofossil Biostratigraphy (Bown 1998) and some recent papers of Paul Bown. This inital data input was sponsored by GCS-SEPM, carried out by Lyndsey Doulgas and supervised by Jeremy Young. Additional content is being added progressively by Paul Bown, Jackie Lees and co-workers, including holotype illustrations and identification notes.
Navigation: use the "Mesozoic" menu to navigate through the taxonomy click taxon names to see deta and click the "+" box to see subtaxa. You can also search for taxa by using the search box.
Information given: For most taxa you will see four panels;
Known problems: there are a couple of problems arising from how the species list was input to nannotax, these will be rectified as we edit the Mesozoic pages.
