6th Regional Symposium of the IFAA (July 1-5, 2009, Milano,Italy)
Following a consolidate tradition of our symposia, the scientific topics cover any aspects of calcareous algae and microbialites, including their present-day distribution and abundance. In addition, we are inviting to present your contribution to a cross-cut topic with strong implications in biology, palaeontology, sedimentology, geology and climatology: the quantification (in space or time, at any scale) of the carbonate production of calcareous algae. Although calcareous algae commonly occur both in the present-day shelf environments at all latitudes and in the fossil record, we still need a tentative quantification of their abundance, in space and time. Calcareous algae are sensitive to the expected consequences of global change, therefore our contribution will be particularly important to a wide scientific community, not only to algae specialists. Therefore, especially welcome are contributions aimed at the identification/delimitation of marine habitats dominated by calcareous algae, also by geophysical survey, and all approaches to the quantification of living/fossil calcareous algae in different environmental/paleoenvironmental settings.

Post-doctoral Fellowship, Bushveld Intelligence Centre, Department of Geology, University of Pretoria
To start in 2008, for a renewable one year contract (maximum is two years). Annual Fellowship is R100,000-00 (normally non-taxable), single return airfare from overseas (where relevant), plus field expenses.
The project is to carry out a holistic study of the tectonic and structural setting of the Bushveld Complex, within a framework of Transvaal and Waterberg Basins geodynamic development. Key topics to be addressed are given below (# s 4 to 6, particularly):
(1) To critically assess existing work on basin analysis of the Transvaal basin, and to fill in the gaps in the western part of that preservational basin, and in its adjacent eastern-Botswana portion;
(2) to carry out a basin analysis of the central Main Waterberg Basin, to complement more geographically limited extant studies along its southern and NE margins, and in the smaller Middelberg Basin;
(3) to fully examine, in detail the nature and history of the deposits of the Loskop, Glentig and Rust de Winter Formations (traditionally regarded as uppermost Transvaal units, but clearly syn-Bushveld molasse deposits, from the preliminary work of Jacques Martini [1998. The Loskop Formation and its relationship to the Bushveld Complex, South Africa, J. Afr. Earth Sci., 27/2, 193-222] on certain Loskop outcrops) in order to better understand spatial and chronological relations between the three suites of the Bushveld, the Rooiberg volcanics and these essentially syn-Bushveld Loskop sedimentary and lesser volcanic deposits. The structural effects of Bushveld mafic activity can be read, to a certain extent, from the nature and variability of these pan-Loskop deposits.
(4) To collate existing and collect new structural data on the Bushveld Complex (also relevant geophysical data) to build a regional data set.
(5) Most importantly, to link the evolution of the Bushveld Complex to the gedynamic history of its enclosing Transvaal and Waterberg Basins, and to existing cratonic architecture, and to post-Bushveld tectonic events.
(6) To establish the regional metamorphic history related to Bushveld intrusion and to integrate this with the above studies.

Carnets de Géologie - Notebooks on Geology
Launched in 2002 this open-access e-journal presents peer-reviewed papers in the field of sedimentology, stratigraphy, and paleontology.
Simple and practical techniques to manage small databases, illustrated by a case study: bibliographic data from the "Fossil Cnidaria & Porifera" newsletter
Katarzyna Zalecka, Tomasz Wrzo?ek & Bruno Granier.- Small databases, i.e., with less than 15,000 entries, are sometimes handled using inappropriate, complex, and often expensive data management systems. We present and briefly discuss a few types of proprietary and open-source, relational and non-relational, server-based versus portable databases and specific tools to handle the latter. With a collection of nearly 7,000 bibliographic notes during its 40-year history "Fossil Cnidaria & Porifera (FC&P)", the newsletter of the "International Association for Study of Fossil Cnidaria and Porifera", was chosen as a case study. The analysis of the temporal trends in the FC&P bibliographic database shows a decrease over the years in the number of publications effectively reported in FC&P. Almost all relevant papers for the decade 1981-1990 are reported, but this good coverage ratio falls down to less than 50% after 2000; accordingly, the concern about the data representativeness is addressed in our interpretation. Besides the classical database management systems and spreadsheet software, which were originally used with the FC&P case study, we present two discrete, open-source, flat and portable options where data can be displayed using any widely available Internet browser, and that are suitable to handle most small databases (XML or JS files) as documented herein.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/56249

Lower Aptian ammonites of the Sierra de Parras, Coahuila State, northern Mexico
José R. Ovando-Figueroa, Josep A. Moreno-Bedmar, Gabriel Chávez-Cabello & Keith P. Minor.- We report an interesting Aptian ammonite record from the La Peña Formation in the Sierra de Parras, Coahuila State. This assemblage is analyzed from a paleoecological perspective. It contains the first reported occurrence of a macroconch of Dufrenoyia from Mexico, and the largest known specimen of 'Gargasiceras' adkinsi. Such an assemblage yielding large ammonites is unusual in deposits of this age in Mexico. To properly document this ammonite record, we review 'Gargasiceras' adkinsi, formerly misidentified as Rhytidoplites robertsi, and allied taxa. From our analysis, we conclude that 'Gargasiceras' adkinsi exhibits strong intraspecific variability. We also analyze in detail the differences that exist between 'Gargasiceras' adkinsi and Rhytidoplites robertsi, and emend the concept of the genus Rhytidoplites. These revisions are important from a biostratigraphic point of view since 'Gargasiceras' adkinsi is an index species for the lower Aptian ammonite zonation of Mexico.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/56250

In memoriam of my colleague and friend Guy Tronchetti (1938-2014)
Michel Moullade.- The chief editor of a prestigious scientific journal, who is about to publish a major article of which Guy is one of the lead authors, replied to the news of his passing: "I am very sorry to hear about that. I have known Guy Tronchetti from publications, for a long time. It is really sad." This quote and Googling his name show that, according to his publications, some of them very recent, Guy was still both at the cutting edges of research and a scientist at an international level. His great modesty did not allow people to necessarily acknowledge this, especially those who did not attempt to overcome such an obstacle. - Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/56047

Significance of partial leaching in calcareous ooids: The case study of Hauterivian oolites in Switzerland
Bruno Granier, Vincent Barbin & Jean Charollais.- In the Canton of Vaud (Switzerland), two Hauterivian oolitic units were penetrated by a borehole. In both units, the ooids are partly leached. More specifically, the ooid cortices were partly leached and some ooid nuclei appear suspended in the middle of cortical moldic cavities created by leaching, rather than having fallen to the bottom of these cavities before the final cementation take place. We demonstrate that these ooids were originally calcitic, not aragonitic, not "two-phase" nor "bimineral". This leaching is not an early diagenetic feature related to subaerial exposure, but a late diagenetic feature, possibly related to the migration of acidic pore waters, brought about by Alpine tectonics and/or karstification.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/56045

Borings and etchings in the Upper Bathonian-Lower Callovian oolite of the Paris Basin (France)
Bruno Granier.- The oolite of the "Dalle Nacrée" Formation in the Paris Basin is made of marine calcareous ooids with, from base to top, radial (and therefore likely to have been calcite), concentric and micritic fabrics, each corresponding to a discrete stratigraphic unit. Several hardgrounds and oolitic pebble-cobble layers in the succession are encrusted and bored. Three main types of boring have been identified ranging in sizes from some tens of µm (sponge borings) to centimeters (bivalve borings), with an intermediate category (worm borings). Some worm borings have rough walls, where early marine fibrous cement is less corroded than the cortices of cemented ooids. The key to understanding this differential dissolution could be related to organic matter, present within the ooid cortices but lacking in the fibrous cement. Polychaete worms that use chemical means (enzymes or acids) to bore are probably responsible for these peculiar borings. A secondary conclusion is that partly or fully leached ooid cortices do not necessarily indicate an original aragonitic mineralogy of the dissolved parts.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/56043
