The Canadian Association of Palynologists was established in 1978 and, at a late tally (October 8 2014), had 59 individuals on favorable terms. The Association is controlled by a little official. Top individuals incorporate palynologists from Universities, Industry and Government Agencies. Top participation is drawn from the overall palynological group. The Association focusses on palynology from every single geologic time, crossing the Palaeozoic to the Quaternary. Palynologists from all branches of the order, from stratigraphic palynology, to palaeoecology, to melissopalynology, take an interest in the Association. We invite new individuals.
Top imparts essentially through a bulletin that is created twice per year (May and November). This web presentation is outlined as a supplement and expansion of the CAP Newsletter. The CAP web presentation is planned as a data asset for CAP individuals and any other individual inspired by Canadian palynology.
The first idea of the Canadian Association of Palynologists (CAP) was proposed in Calgary at the 1974 Geological Survey of Canada's yearly meeting of palynologists. The proposition was started by Wayne W. Brideaux. No further move was made on this proposition until 1978, again at a meeting of the GSC palynologists in Calgary when Sedley Barss, Jonathan Bujak and Graham Williams consented to circle a poll to Canadian palynologists looking for their backing of such a nationalistic association. Of 100 polls, 51 were returned, 44 for the arrangement of a Canadian Association of Palynologists. In April 1978 Graham Williams exhibited points of interest of CAP to the Executive of the American Association of Stratigraphic Palynologists who extended their backing to the new gathering.
Top has delivered a bulletin, with two issues for each year, since 1978 even before the decision of its first Executive. Pamphlet editors have assumed an essential part in the accomplishment of CAP, while normal yearly gatherings are not generally conceivable. The Newsletter serves as the key connection in our correspondence.Read More»
