Abstract Major changes in the marine biota of the western Atlantic region occurred over the last five million years, but the causes of these changes, and especially the relative roles of changes in temperature and nutrients in affecting them, have been controversial. The resolution of this issue has implications beyond this particular time and region because they include two environmental perturbations (the formation of the Central American Isthmus and the initiation of northern hemisphere… Expand
