Foraminifera make the world go round (if you ask any researcher who studies them). Every 4 years the International Symposium on Foraminifera (FORAMS) brings together the global community of scientists working on these famous marine protists. Karoliina, Myrsini and Iines all attended FORAMS 2018 in Edinburgh last week. As well as giving presentations themselves, it was a great opportunity to discuss recent advances and meet their collaborative partners, including Hidetaka Nomaki and Takashi Toyofuku (JAMSTEC, Japan), Clare Bird (Uni. Stirling, UK) and Gert-Jan Reichart (NIOZ, Netherlands).
