Beschreibung:

An up-to-date atlas of an important fossil and living group,with the Natural History Museum.
Deep-sea benthic foraminifera have played a central role inbiostratigraphic, paleoecological, and paleoceanographical researchfor over a century. These single-celled marine protists areimportant because of their geographic ubiquity, distinctionmorphologies and rapid evolutionary rates, their abundance anddiversity deep-sea sediments, and because of their utility asindicators of environmental conditions both at and below thesediment-water interface. In addition, stable isotopic dataobtained from deep-sea benthic foraminiferal tests providepaleoceanographers with environmental information that is provingto be of major significance in studies of global climaticchange.

This work collects together, for the first time, new morphologicaldescriptions, taxonomic placements, stratigraphic occurrence data,geographical distribution summaries, and palaeoecologicalinformation, along with state-of-the-art colour photomicrographs(most taken in reflected light, just as you would see them usinglight microscopy), of 300 common deep-sea benthic foraminiferaspecies spanning the interval from Jurassic - Recent. This volumeis intended as a reference and research resource for post-graduatestudents in micropalaeontology, geological professionals(stratigraphers, paleontologists, paleoecologists,palaeoceanographers), taxonomists, and evolutionary(paleo)biologists.
