Old Logos (< 2019)
The logo (left) includes a diagrammatic representation of a coccolithophorid such as Emiliania huxleyi. The two right-hand images show scanning electron microcopic images of this species. The second image from the left is a coccolithophorid from a plate in a publication* by Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895, known as “Darwin’s Bulldog”) showing a very early picture of a coccolithophorid from the North Atlantic.
