News from the Collections
Thank you to Bob Lundin (Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University) for kindly donating his 69-volume set of the Ellis and Messina Catalogue of Ostracoda to UCMP. In addition to personally delivering this invaluable reference set, Bob also gave us a nice collection of conodonts from the Mississippian of Nevada and Utah, with promises of more to come!
