Mark Wilson (co-leader) reports that total funds for the project in 1997 were U.S. $4200, a significant reduction from what we had hoped and from what we got last year. Even so, during the year, IGCP 406 held two meetings, in Buckow, Germany during July, and in St. Petersburg, Russia during September. Both resulted in substantial volumes of abstracts published as two special publications of Ichthyolith Issues. The St. Petersburg meeting also included a workshop for authors of a volume on Severnaya Zemlya stratigraphy, part of it to be published in Russia and another part by Geodiversitas, Museum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris. In addition, smaller workshops, discussions, and field meetings, funded by other agencies, were held in London, Vilnius, and Edinburgh, and project-related field work took place in northern Canada, Alaska, and Scotland. The project now includes more than 100 participants from 20 countries.

Per Ahlberg (NHM, London): In 1996 was awarded a NATO grant for a two year project to re-evaluate and compare the Middle and Late Devonian vertebrate faunas of Scaat Craig, Britain (mainly Scotland) and the Baltic States, (Latvia, Estonia) and western Russia, and involving co-operation between UK and some of the Baltic States. The project involves biostratigraphiccorrelation of the Upper Devonian sediments between the Baltic States and the UK using fishes particularly sarcopterygians and antiarchs. Associate investigators are Dr. Ervin Lucksevics, Dr. "Sasha" Alexander Ivanov, Dr. Elga Mark Kurik.

Dr. Nigel Trewin and Bob Davidson (Aberdeen):
Main area of interest is in the sequence stratigraphy, sedimentology, palaeoecology/interpretation of environments of Devonian fish, particularly the Silurian and Old Red Sandstone of Scotland. Work on Middle O.R.S. fish bedsin Moray Firth area, Scotland. During 1996-1997 have been involved in fieldwork and collecting of fish fossils in the Lower Old Red Sandstone of Turin Hill, Forfarshire and also in the Middle Old Red Sandstone, Tynet Burn Fish Bed, Fochabers at south margin of the Orcadian Basin. Other field work visits included the Lower Old Red Sandstone of
