This course presents and explore the use and application of ostracod studies in palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. The preparation methods of their carapaces, the skeletal anatomy, taxonomy, biology and mode of life of ostracods will be reviewed. With the help of case studies applications of ostracod faunas in palaeoecology, palaeoceanography and environmental science will be featured.
