Sarita Camacho was born in 1974 in Luanda, Angola. She holds a degree in Marine Biology and Fisheries from Algarve University, Portugal. Her first steps in micropaleontology were in 1998 at Dalhousie University, Halifax, under the supervision of Prof. David Scott, who taught her about the foraminifera and thecamoebians of transitional environments. This experience led her to join the Centre for Marine and Environmental Research (CIMA), where she has participated in several multidisciplinary projects on paleoenvironmental reconstruction of estuarine systems along the Portuguese south coast. Currently, her main interest is in knowing more about the potential of estuarine foraminifera and thecamoebians as environmental stress indicators.

David B. Scott was born in 1947 in California. He has been Professor of Earth Sciences, Dalhousie University, Halifax, for more than 35 years, with more than 40 grad students and over 130 papers. His long career as micropaleontologist as taken him to almost all parts of the world to study recent and ancient foraminifera, ostracoda and thecamoebians and their use as paleoenvironmental indicators and coastal zone management tools. His main contribution to micropaleontology research is related to his pioneering studies that use salt-marsh foraminiferal biozonation to infer sea-level changes in the past. Currently his main interest is related to global climate changes, most recently using deep-sea corals as a climate archive.
