Atlas of Benthic Foraminifera by Ann Holbourn,Andrew S. Henderson,Norman Macleod

By Ann Holbourn,Andrew S. Henderson,Norman Macleod

An updated atlas of a massive fossil and residing team, with the common heritage Museum.

Deep-sea benthic foraminifera have performed a valuable function in biostratigraphic, paleoecological, and paleoceanographical learn for over a century. those single–celled marine protists are very important due to their geographic ubiquity, contrast morphologies and fast evolutionary premiums, their abundance and variety deep–sea sediments, and thanks to their application as symptoms of environmental stipulations either at and under the sediment–water interface. additionally, reliable isotopic information got from deep–sea benthic foraminiferal assessments offer paleoceanographers with environmental info that's proving to be of significant value in experiences of worldwide climatic change.

This paintings collects jointly, for the 1st time, new morphological descriptions, taxonomic placements, stratigraphic incidence facts, geographical distribution summaries, and palaeoecological details, in addition to cutting-edge color photomicrographs (most taken in mirrored gentle, simply as you will see them utilizing mild microscopy), of three hundred universal deep-sea benthic foraminifera species spanning the period from Jurassic - fresh. This quantity is meant as a reference and study source for post-graduate scholars in micropalaeontology, geological pros (stratigraphers, paleontologists, paleoecologists, palaeoceanographers), taxonomists, and evolutionary (paleo)biologists.
