Foraminifera and their Classification
Foraminifera are tiny, single-celled, shell-constructing organisms that inhabit a wide range of marine environments from the intertidal zone to the deep sea in all regions of the world.
Cushman was one of the first scientists to use forams in support of oil exploration.
Sharon laboratory, the center of foraminiferal research in the early part of the twentieth century, trained a generation of researchers.
Publications and Bibliography
Joseph Cushman published hundreds of papers in his lifetime. His textbook on foraminifera was the first and only for many years.
