A Corrigendum on
Sclerochronological Study of a Glycymeris vanhengstumi Population From the Madeira Islands

by Németh, A., and Kern, Z. (2018). Front. Earth Sci. 6:76. doi: 10.3389/feart.2018.00076

In the original article, there was an error. The scientific name of the studied bivalve species has been misspelled as “Glycymeris vangentsumi.” The correct spelling should be “Glycymeris vanhengstumi” (Goud and Gulden, 2009). The spelling mistake appeared throughout the entire manuscript and, most regretfully, in the title. The same spelling mistake occurred in the legends for Figures 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7.

In addition, we thanked the IIMAR-Madeira organization instead of Dr. Kai George. A correction has been made to the Acknowledgement. It should read:

“We are grateful to the editor, Michael Hermoso and the three reviewers for their helpful and constructive comments. The authors would like to thank Dr. Kai George, from the German Center of Marine Biodiversity, who organized and partially financed the POS466 cruise of the research vessel Poseidon. The help of the captain and the crew of Poseidon is also greatly appreciated. Thanks to Jeroen Goud for his help with the identification of the shells and the INCREMENTS Group (Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany) where we were given the opportunity to prepare the samples. This is contribution No.58. of 2 ka Palæoclimatology Research Group.”

The authors apologize for these errors and state that these do not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.
