Part I has as its first objective the development of a logical classification of the families and genera of the planktonic: Foraminifera. Its second objective is to describe various planktonic faunules, presenting 81d quate illustrations and clear descriptions With the hope of progressing toward a better understanding of inter region'al correlations and perhaps eventually to develop a uniform world-wide zonation. Its third objective is to present the results of studies that may be of use to the economic paleontologist in local well-to-well correla tions or in exploration in unknown areas. The first two aims lead inevitably to the third, for science is, valuable to man only insofar as it 18 his servant, and our artificial taxonomy, which 18 only man-made and not a product of nature itself, must be made useful if it is to be worthwhile.
