Abstract: The Fourth Polar Diatom Colloquium was hosted by the Department of Quaternary Research, Stockholm University, on August 24-28, 1992. The meeting was held at the Field Station of Marine Biology of Stockholm University. The meeting consisted of both microscopic and thematic sessions. The microscope work concentrated on (1) assessing the alteration of diatom assemblages via postmortem processes in both the Arctic and Antarctic, and (2) diatom evolution in the Antarctic spanning the lower Cretaceous to present. The thematic sessions focused on (1) modern diatom distribution as a function of environmental variability,(2) the use of modern analogs in interpreting the sedimentary record, and (3) taxonomic, evolutionary, and biostratigraphic concepts in diatom work. These proceedings contain abstracts of all the talks presented at the meeting, as well as summaries of the microscopic sessions and lists of participants at this and other polar diatom colloquia.
