Foraminiferal assemblages and their use as indicators of sediments movement: a study in the shelf region off Navapur, India
Factor analysis of 60 species of foraminifera from 13 stations off Navapur, reveals three major assemblages - Ammonia annectens, Ammonia papillosus-Asterorotalia dentata and Ammobaculites persicus assemblages. These ...
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 ...
