The content and scope of the Cushman Laboratory and Cushman Foundation Special Publications are briefly described and summarized in four tables. Seventy-seven Special Publications have been produced over the past 90+ years. Most are taxonomic works, of variable length (up to 661 pages) with copious illustrations (up to 389 plates) in the form of images of foraminiferal taxa (six Special Publications are on radiolaria and one on thecamoebians). The Special Publications underpin all other aspects of micropaleontological (particularly foraminiferal) research ranging from biostratigraphy to paleoceanography to evolutionary studies.
