Nannoplankton has become a common tool for dating and reconstructing stratigraphic frameworks. This proceedings volume of the 8th Conference of the International Nannoplankton Association (INA 8), Bremen, September 11 ­ 15, 2000 includes nine papers presented during the conference. The increasing co-operation with scientists outside the nannoplankton field which was so evident during the conference is duly reflected in the present issue by papers in which the nannoflora is used in an integrated, interdisciplinary way together with other plankton groups and their proxies such as foraminifera and their stable isotopic composition, palynomorphs and diatoms. The issues reflects the diversity of present-day nannofossil research despite its restriction to Cretaceous and younger material, of the four studies on Cretaceous to Paleocene, three use nannofossils in their 'classical' way to date sediments and to construct local or regional stratigraphic frameworks, the fourth study puts more emphasis on palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. Of the remaining papers on Neogene to present-day nannoflora, one uses nannofossils to reconstruct the environment. Two papers concentrate on the biology of the nannofloral taxa and use changing environmental conditions to reconstruct taxon evolution and/or ecology. The last two papers concentrate on the information carried by 'displaced' coccoliths, either in turbudites or in eolian deposits.

This proceedings issue reflects the diversity of present-day nannofossil research. Nannoplankton has become a common tool for dating and reconstructing stratigraphic frameworks. This proceedings volume of the 8th Conference of the International Nannoplankton Association (INA 8), Bremen, September 11 ­ 15, 2000 includes nine papers presented during the conference. The papers presented in this volume cover applications of nannofossil research on Cretaceous and younger age material, ranging from nannofloral evolution and ecology to classical stratigraphic applications.
