    Tropical Large Benthic Foraminifera (LBF) are one of the most biologically diverse and ecologically fascinating calcium-carbonate producing taxonomic groups globally. Their evolutionary history and proliferation through geological time serves as a beacon to understand the various modes of adaptation, extinction, and radiation during periods of environmental change. Often hailed as bioindicators, LBFs have served to characterise recent and reconstruct paleoenvironments by building our knowledge of their physiology, test geochemistry, and geobiology.

    With the development of modern analytical techniques, micropaleontologists have been able to bring to light the extensive diversity and natural history of these prominent marine calcifiers. By combining new techniques and disciplines, LBFs have been shown to touch upon broad topics from genetics to geoscience. Consequently, it is becoming increasingly evident that LBFs can provide vast amounts of information towards understanding novel paradigms in the face of changing environmental conditions. Such information is highly relevant now more than ever to prepare for future uncertainties. 

    The Journal of Earth Science (Springer, IF 2.2) is pleased to invite authors to contribute manuscripts to a Special Issue titled Tropical Large Benthic Foraminifera: Adaption, Extinction, and Radiation. This issue will focus on original research avenues that explores new findings on the adaptive potential, biomineralization, as well as advances in the reconstruction of paleoenvironments during extinction events. The leading themes will focus on the properties and strategies of LBFs during such events, which were profoundly affected but ultimately led LBFs to recover and diversify quite rapidly. We encourage submissions from researchers working on an array of new methodologies, geographic regions, and geological ages. Papers can be submitted to this Special Issue anytime on or before 15 June, 2021. Accepted papers will be published online as open access and free of charge (no article publishing charges). All papers will then be published together in a single issue of the Journal of Earth Science

    Author guidelines: We call for all manuscript types including original research reports, reviews (subject to pre-approval), and shorter research notes (the number of research notes will be very limited and so must be quite innovative for consideration). Please consult the Journal of Earth Science website for specific details pertaining to formatting requirements and other instructions for authors: https://www.springer.com/journal/12583/submission-guidelines

    Deadline for manuscript submission: 15 June, 2021

    Completion of the first-round review: 15 September, 2021

    Deadline for revised manuscripts: 31 October, 2021

    Completion of the review and revision process: 15 December, 2021

    Possible date for publication: January 2022

    Manuscripts should be submitted online at https://mc03.manuscriptcentral.com/jes

    Guest Editors for this special issue are Claire Reymond from the China University of Geosciences (CN), Pamela Hallock from the University of South Florida (USA), and Hildegard Westphal from the Leibniz-Centre for Tropical Marine Research (DE).
