We propose a new book which will provide an updated and more balanced presentation of both the biology and fossil record of radiolarians. The primary target for this book will be researchers and advanced students, and will specifically include more material on paleobiologic themes, as well as a synthesis of recent biologic and ecologic research. A more balanced, critical review of biostratigraphy, paleoenvironmental studies, including principles and methods, and the taxonomy/systematics of the group will be given, as will a summary of the history of research. Lastly, a broader range of primary literature, including extensive research in non-english sources (japanese, russian etc) will be used to provide a better summary of our biologic and geologic knowledge of this important group of organisms. The composition of the proposed book (nine major chapters) is outlined below:

"Paleobiology of the Polycystine Radiolaria is well worth the purchase price and should be in the personal library of all protistologists working on marine forms." Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology "A welcome addition to the literature in a field that is rich in potential for interdisciplinary research." Journal of Plankton Research

Author Biography

About the Editors David Lazarus has studied the paleobiology and earth science applications of Cenozoic radiolaria for more than 40 years, formerly holding research positions at Columbia University/Lamont Earth Observatory, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the Eidgenoessische Technische Hochschule Zurich. He is currently Curator for Micropaleontology at the Museum fur Naturkunde in Berlin. Noritoshi Suzuki has studied the taxonomy and species diversity of radiolarians thoughout the Phanerozoic. He started his career in field geology, switched to Devonian radiolarians for his Masters degree, and received his PhD degree for a study of Cenozoic radiolarians from Tohoku University, Japan. He has co-published a monograph on the radiolarians of the Ehrenberg Collection (Berlin), and has published integrative studies of radiolarian morphology and phylogenetics. He is currently Associate Professor at Tohoku University. Yoshiyuki Ishitani is a paleobiologist, focusing on the evolution of radiolarians. He is currently a researcher at the University of Tsukuba, and was formerly at Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, Glasgow University, and the University of Tokyo. Kozo Takahashi has studied the distribution and ecology of radiolarians and other siliceous plankton collected from ocean waters for several decades. Following an early career of staff scientist positions at the Woods Hole and Scripps oceanographic institutions he held multiple professorships in Japan, including universities in Sapporo and Kyushu University in Fukuoka.
