Foraminifera as Bioindicators in Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring: The FORAM Index
Coral reef communities are threatened worldwide. Resource managers urgently need indicators of the biological condition of reef environments that can relate data acquired through remote-sensing,Expand

Nutrient excess and the demise of coral reefs and carbonate platforms
Growth rates of corals on Holocene reefs indicate that carbonate platforms should easily keep pace with long-term subsidence and sea-level changes, yet drowned reefs and platforms are common in theExpand

Large foraminifera; a tool for paleoenvironmental analysis of Cenozoic carbonate depositional facies
Previous studies of test shape and distribution trends of reefassociated Foraminiferida provide the basis for a model of foraminiferal distribution in Cenozoic carbonate depositional facies. TheExpand

Production of carbonate sediments by selected large benthic foraminifera on two Pacific coral reefs
ABSTRACT Carbonate production, deposition, and turnover rates by selected members of the rotaliine foraminiferal families Asterigerinidae, Calcarinidae, and Nummulitidae were calculated using growthExpand

Symbiont-bearing Foraminifera
Of approximately 150 extant families of Foraminifera, less than 10% harbor algal endosymbionts (Lee and Anderson, 1991a). Nevertheless, these families are responsible for much of the carbonateExpand

Fluctuations in the trophic resource continuum: A factor in global diversity cycles?
The trophic resource continuum (TRC) in euphotic zones of the world's oceans is the spectrum of conditions from the richest runoff and upwelling areas to the most nutrient deficient subtropical seas.Expand

Similarities between Planktonic and Larger Foraminiferal Evolutionary Trends through Paleogene Paleoceanographic Changes
Abstract The Paleogene evolutionary records of planktonic foraminifera and larger benthic foraminifera show parallel patterns in development that may, in part, reflect changes in nutrient flux toExpand

Carbonate systems along nutrient and temperature gradients: some sedimentological and geochemical constraints
Research over the past several decades has clearly demonstrated that changes in the ocean environment have had major impacts on carbonate systems. Changes in climate, ocean circulation and seafloorExpand

The role of nutrient availability in bioerosion: Consequences to carbonate buildups
Abstract Zooxanthellate organisms, which are among the major carbonate producers on coral reefs, are highly adapted to nutrient-deficient conditions and tend to be outcompeted by filamentous orExpand

Upper Cretaceous Stratigraphy of the Island of Brac within the Geodynamic Evolution of the Adriatic Carbonate Platform
Though news coming out of Yugoslavia these days is generally bad, this unusual book is a welcome exception. The work was stimulated by a project to develop a new geologic map of Croatia; the resultExpand
