The International Nannoplankton Association
Welcome to the INA. This is an association of scientists worldwide
who have an interest in living or fossil nannoplankton - including
coccolithophores, nannoliths, and other mineralising nannoplankton such
as silicoflagellates and calcispheres. The Association exists to
facilitate pure and applied study of nannoplankton and this site is
intended to assist in doing so.
