Abstract
LEES, J. A., BOWN, P. R. & YOUNG, J. R. 2006. Jake Hancock: reminiscences. Proceedings of the Geologists' Association, 117, 125-127. At the Geological Society memorial meeting held to celebrate Professor Jake Hancock's extensive career, and to mourn the passing of this legendary geologist, we three nannopalaeontologists were invited to talk on nannofossils at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary. This talk, which detailed new evidence for rapid nannofossil extinctions and the role of neritic taxa in the subsequent recolonization of the oceans, was preceded by some reminiscences about Jake, whom we all knew. These are reproduced here.
