Within the world’s oceans, regionally distinct ecological niches develop due to differences in water temperature, nutrients, food availability, predation and light intensity. This results in differences in the vertical dispersion of planktonic foraminifera on the global scale. Understanding the controls on these modern-day distributions is important when using these organisms for paleoceanographic reconstructions. As such, this study constrains modern depth habitats for the northern equatorial… 

Assessing the impact of diagenesis on foraminiferal geochemistry from a low latitude, shallow-water drift deposit

Supplementary material to "Late Neogene evolution of modern deep-dwelling plankton"

Abstract. The fossil record of marine microplankton provides insights into the evolutionary drivers which led to the origin of modern deep-water plankton, one of the largest component of ocean

Large freshwater-influx-induced salinity gradient and diagenetic changes in the northern Indian Ocean dominate the stable oxygen isotopic variation in Globigerinoides ruber

Abstract. The application of stable oxygen isotopic ratio of surface-dwelling planktic foraminifera Globigerinoides ruber (white variety; δ18Oruber) to reconstruct past hydrological changes requires

Late Pliocene to Early Pleistocene Planktonic Foraminifera from Northern Indian Ocean (Andaman and Nicobar Islands): Interpretation on Cooling Event and Ocean Upwelling

Thirty-two planktonic foraminiferal taxa have been identified based on Bright Field microscopic study as well as Scanning Electron Microscopy on the samples collected from the outcrop adjacent to

Using past interglacial temperature maxima to explore transgressions in modern Maldivian coral and Amphistegina bleaching thresholds

Assessment of foraminiferal shell geochemical compositions from Recent surface sediments and Marine Isotope stage (MIS) 9e and MIS11c aged sediments shows SSTs occasionally breached the coral bleaching threshold similarly to the modern-day, illustrated through traditional (pooled) geochemical analysis.

Factors controlling the depth habitat of planktonic foraminifera in the subtropical eastern North Atlantic

Abstract. Planktonic foraminifera preserved in marine sediments archive the physical and chemical conditions under which they built their shells. To interpret the paleoceanographic information

Reconstructing the thermal structure of the upper ocean: Insights from planktic foraminifera shell chemistry and alkenones in modern sediments of the tropical eastern Indian Ocean

[1] Shell chemistry of planktic foraminifera and the alkenone unsaturation index in 69 surface sediment samples in the tropical eastern Indian Ocean off West and South Indonesia were studied. Results

Corroborating ecological depth preferences of planktonic foraminifera in the tropical Atlantic with the stable oxygen isotope ratios of core top specimens
