"This volume honors the memory of Georges Deflandre 1897-1973 and Alfred Eisenack 1891-1982, whose studies on fossil microplankton, during 90 collective years of active research, laid the foundation of our knowledge of dinoflagellate cysts"--Verso of title page.

This volume aims to summarize what is currently known about the morphology of sporopollenin dinflagellate cysts and to provide guides for their interpretation. Its immediate basis is a short course involving about 80 hours of lectures, demonstrations, and laboratory work, which I have presented to numerous small groups of professional paleontologists and to my advanced graduate students during the last dozen years. More generally it draws on experience with fossil dinoflagellates that began in 1956, shortly after I joined William S. Hoffmeister's palynology research group in the Carter Oil Company, then the site of geological research for the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey (now Exxon Corporation)--Preface.
