Plastic pellets on the Caranzalem beach sands, Goa, India
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1982)
Postmonsoonal survey of Caranzalem beach, Goa, India indicated the presence of plastic pellets. These pellets varied in shape, size and number, and are considered to be contaminants of marine environment
Microenvironments and anomalous benthic foraminiferal distribution within the neritic regime of the Dabhol-Vengurla sector (Arabian Sea)
(Universita' degli Studi di Milano, 1980)
An anomalous distribution of benthic Foraminifera within the neritic regime at a few stations indicates the existence of microenvironments. The vertical distribution is marked by the restricted occurrence of @iCibicides@@ ...
The intriguing relationship between coiling direction and reproductive mode in benthic foraminifera
(The Palaeontological Society of India, 1989)
Changes in coiling direction in foraminifera have been used extensively as proxy data for paleoclimates. However, most of the studies centred around planktonic foraminifera, and various causes (including reproductive mode) ...
Distribution, factor analysis and ecology of benthic foraminifera within inner shelf regime of Vengurla-Bhatkal sector, West Coast, India
(Geological Society of India, 1987)
One hundred and two taxa of benthic foraminifera are reported from the neritic environment (15-60 m) of Vengurla - Bhatkal area. Q-mode factor analysis reveals 6 important foraminiferal assemblages accounting for 92% of ...
Foraminiferal assemblages and their use as indicators of sediments movement: a study in the shelf region off Navapur, India
Factor analysis of 60 species of foraminifera from 13 stations off Navapur, reveals three major assemblages - Ammonia annectens, Ammonia papillosus-Asterorotalia dentata and Ammobaculites persicus assemblages. These ...
Bolivina skagerrakensis, a new name for Bolivina cf. B. robusta with notes on its ecology and distribution
(Cushman Foundation for Foraminiferal Research, 1985)
Intertidal foraminifera from Miramar-Caranzalem Shoreline, Goa
Quantitative analysis of foraminifera (entire and broken) revealed that Rotalina, composed of 29 species, constituted 95.18% while Miliolina, composed of 11 species, and Textulariina, with 5 species were poorly represented. ...
Benthic foraminifera as pollution indices in the marine environment of west coast of India
(Universita' degli Studi di Milano, 1984)
Two ecosystems affected by acidic pollutants (Thana Creek, Bombay and inshore area of Trivandrum, Kerala) and two other ecosystems affected by alkaline pollutants (Cola Bay, Goa and inshore area of Karwar, Karnataka) were ...
Proloculus size variation in Recent benthic foraminifera: Implications for paleoclimatic studies
Ratios of dimorphic (microspheric/megalospheric) forms of Foraminifera are affected by temperature and hence are useful in paleoclimatic studies. In some cases, however, it is not possible to distinguish between the dimorphic ...
