LOW pH EFFECTS ON AMMONIA BECCARII TEST DEFORMATION: IMPLICATIONS FOR USING TEST DEFORMATIONS AS A POLLUTION INDICATOR
The use of foraminifers as bioindicators of pollution in coastal and paralic environments has undergone a very fast development. Among various criteria, morphological abnormalities are sometimesExpand
Distribution Trends of Foraminiferal Assemblages in Paralic Environments
Increasing pollution by industrial, agricultural, and other anthropogenic chemicals makes it ever more necessary to develop a thorough water management system. Chemical analyses are often used, butExpand
Factors determining the distribution of foraminiferal assemblages in Port Joinville Harbor (Ile d'Yeu, France): the influence of pollution
Port Joinville harbor is located on an island. Thus, it receives only a few freshwater inputs, contrary to most of the areas where the influence of pollution on foraminiferal assemblages has beenExpand
ORIGIN OF MORPHOLOGICAL ABNORMALITIES IN AMMONIA (FORAMINIFERA): STUDIES IN LABORATORY AND NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS
Morphological abnormalities of foraminiferal tests have been studied in cultures of Ammonia tepida and A. beccarii. Regular asexual reproduction cycles of A. tepida show the influence of highExpand
Foraminiferal proxies for pollution monitoring in moderately polluted harbors.
Benthic foraminifera are increasingly used as environmental bio-indicators, especially in polluted environments where their sensitivity to pollutants may be expressed by a modification of theExpand
FORAMINIFERAL ASSEMBLAGES IN A HYPERSALINE LAGOON, ARARUAMA (R.J.) BRAZIL
Foraminiferal assemblages were studied in 93 samples collected in the lagoon of Araruama and in the adjacent area. The lagoon of Araruama is one of the largest hypersaline lagoons in the world, withExpand

Morphological abnormalities of foraminiferal tests in Brazilian environments: comparison between polluted and non-polluted areas
Abstract We investigated morphological abnormalities of Recent benthic foraminiferal tests in paralic environments of Brazil from two estuaries (Rio Guarau and Rio Una located in the tropical forest)Expand
Foraminifera as potential bio-indicators of the “Erika” oil spill in the Bay of Bourgneuf: Field and experimental studies
Les foraminiferes comme bio-indicateurs potentiels de la maree noire de l'« Erika » en Baie de Bourgneuf: etudes experimentale et de terrain. Les foraminiferes benthiques sont utilises commeExpand
Ammonia beccarii and Ammonia tepida (Foraminifera): morphofunctional arguments for their distinction
Abstract New observations from Yeu Island and the Bay of Bourgneuf on the Atlantic coast of France show that Ammonia beccarii s.s. and Ammonia tepida have different morphofunctional adaptations toExpand
