BENTHIC FORAMINIFERAL RESPONSES TO ESTUARINE POLLUTION: A REVIEW
Benthic foraminiferal distributions in polluted marine areas have been investigated over the last three to four decades, and several workers have pointed out that they provide one of the mostExpand

Benthic foraminifera in sediment cores reflecting heavy metal pollution in Sorfjord, western Norway
Analysis of benthic foraminifera in two short sediment cores (15 and 53 m water depth) from heavy metalpolluted Sarfjord indicates that a faunal shift has taken place, due to heavy metal enrichment.Expand

Colonization of new habitats by benthic foraminifera : A review
Abstract Colonization of new habitats, which have been established as a result of a catastrophic disturbance of the environment, is one of the characteristic repetitive events throughout theExpand

Benthic foraminiferal distribution and recolonization of formerly anoxic environments in Drammensfjord, southern Norway
Abstract Investigations of living (stained) benthic foraminifera in the surface (0–1 cm) sediments along a depth transect in Drammensfjord, southern Norway, have been carried out on samples collectedExpand

The FOBIMO (FOraminiferal BIo-MOnitoring) initiative—Towards a standardised protocol for soft-bottom benthic foraminiferal monitoring studies
The European Community Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) was established to provide guidelines for monitoring the quality of marine ecosystems. Monitoring the status of marine environmentsExpand

MAJOR ASPECTS OF FORAMINIFERAL VARIABILITY (STANDING CROP AND BIOMASS) ON A MONTHLY SCALE IN AN INTERTIDAL ZONE
Temporal and spatial variability of intertidal benthic foraminiferal assemblages in the surface (0–1 cm) sediments have been determined by a time series survey (27 months) of the Hamble estuary,Expand

Monitoring strategies for re-establishment of ecological reference conditions: possibilities and limitations.
The ecological status of an environment should be evaluated by comparison with local "reference conditions", here defined as the pre-industrial ecological status of the 19th century. This pilot studyExpand

Marginal marine environments of the Skagerrak and Kattegat: a baseline study of living (stained) benthic foraminiferal ecology
Abstract This is the first detailed investigation of the distribution and ecology of living (stained) shallow water (0–6 m) foraminifera along the Skagerrak–Kattegat coast, eastern North Sea. A totalExpand

Foraminifera, climatic change, and pollution: a study of late Holocene sediments in Drammensfiord, southeast Norway
Benthic foraminifera are shown to reflect both natural (including climatic) and human- induced environmental alterations over the last 1500 years in Drammensfjord, Norway. Today, Drammensfjord is aExpand

Vertical migratory response of benthic foraminifera to controlled oxygen concentrations in an experimental mesocosm
This experimental study investigated the vertical migratory response of benthic forammifera in sediments that were initially oxygenated, to variations in dissolved-oxygen concentrations rangingExpand
