PhD defence: Elements and isotopes in foraminifera: Magnesium uptake, biomineralization and proxy application
The fossil calciferous skeletons of single-celled foraminifers are a beautiful history book with information on CO2-levels in the oceans of the distant past. "But if you want to fully understand that history, you must first understand exactly how these single-celled organisms build their skeletons." That warning is issued by earth scientist Linda Dämmer in the dissertation she will defend on 29 November at Utrecht University.
