Micropaleontology Press Prepares for Move

Micropaleontology Press prepares to leave its home at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City after 61 years. The Press publishes hundreds of volumes of catalogues that show the microscopic remains of protozoa and tiny crustaceans. It was kept alive as a Works Progress Administration project during the Depression. NPR's Melissa Block visits with John Van Couvering, editor in chief of Micropaleontology Press.
