Difference in optimum temperature for growth and reproduction in benthic foraminifer Rosalina globularis: Implications for paleoclimatic studies
The seawater temperature is an important physical parameter that affects marine benthic community. The effect of seawater temperature however is not consistent throughout various groups of marine benthos. Here, juvenile ...
A note on the laboratory culture of benthic foraminifera collected from nearshore region off Goa, India
(The Palaeontological Society of India, 1996)
A laboratory culture programme is established to extend credibility to foraminiferal-based techniques being used to generate the high-resolution proxy records for palaeoclimatic reconstruction. In order to obtain living ...
Relationship between abundance and morphology of benthic foraminifera Epistominella exigua: Palaeoclimatic implications
(Geological Society of India, 2011)
The relationship between abundance (relative as well as absolute abundance) and morphology (size of the shell, numbers and proloculus size) of benthic foraminifera Epistominella exigua has been studied in a core to understand ...
Laboratory experiment to study the effect of salinity variations on benthic foraminiferal species - Pararotalia nipponica (Asano)
(Geological Society of India, 2006)
Culture experiment has been carried out to observe the response of Pararotalia nipponica (Asano) to different salinities and its salinity tolerance limits. The specimens of P. nipponica kept in 33‰ saline water achieved ...
Effects of sudden stress due to heavy metal mercury on benthic foraminifer Rosalina leei: Laboratory culture experiment
Laboratory culture experiments were carried out to understand the response of benthic foraminifer Rosalina leei to gradual as well as sudden addition of heavy metal mercury into the media. When mercury was added suddenly, ...
Does temperature affect dimorphic reproduction in benthic foraminifera? A culture experiment on Rosalina leei
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2000)
The possible effects of environmental factors on the dimorphic mode of reproduction in benthic foraminifera have been reported in the literature. Published observations based on field samples have indicated an inverse ...
