Benthic foraminifera as pollution indices in the marine environment of west coast of India
(Universita' degli Studi di Milano, 1984)
Two ecosystems affected by acidic pollutants (Thana Creek, Bombay and inshore area of Trivandrum, Kerala) and two other ecosystems affected by alkaline pollutants (Cola Bay, Goa and inshore area of Karwar, Karnataka) were ...
Proloculus size variation in Recent benthic foraminifera: Implications for paleoclimatic studies
Ratios of dimorphic (microspheric/megalospheric) forms of Foraminifera are affected by temperature and hence are useful in paleoclimatic studies. In some cases, however, it is not possible to distinguish between the dimorphic ...
Reproductive behaviour of benthic foraminifera: A key to palaeoclimate
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1988)
Many benthic foraminiferal species exhibit dimorphism associated with reproduction. The two resultant forms are known as microspheric and megalospheric forms. Culture studies, though limited in number, show that ratios of ...
Influence of estuaries on shelf foraminiferal species
Dabhol-bhatkal stretch of the west coast of India is marked by a number of estuaries. Cavarotalia annectens is selected to monitor the influence of these estuaries on the inner shelf foraminiferal fauna. The percentage ...
Ecological regime and distribution of Virgulinella spp. in the inshore sediments of western India
@iVirgulinella@@ Cushman, 1932 was distinguished as a subgenus from @iVirgulina@@ d'Orbigny, 1826 (non @iVirgulina@@ Bory, 1823 = @iFursenkoina@@) on the basis of the development of numerous small arched sutural openings ...
