Morphoclines of living operculinid foraminifera based on quantitative characters

Abstract

Growth-independent test characters of the generaOperculina, Planoperculina, andPlanosteginawere investigated to determine relations to water depth in form of morphoclines. All characters describing test form – thickness, initial vector of the test spiral that is correlated to proloculus size, and radius expansion rate describing test contour – are… (More)
