    Biotic indices are tools to assess the ecological status of marine systems, and can be based on different metrics (such as ecological groups, specific diversity). The present study applies five biotic indices based on living (stained) benthic foraminiferal assemblages to assess ecological conditions in a wide area of the Mediterranean Sea in the heavily polluted Gulf of Gabes and along the...

    Biostratigraphy of large benthic foraminifera from Hole U1468A (Maldives): a CT-scan taxonomic approach

    Coletti, Giovanni ; Stainbank, Stephanie ; Fabbrini, Alessio ; Spezzaferri, Silvia ; Foubert, Anneleen ; Kroon, Dick ; Betzler, Christian

    In: Swiss Journal of Geosciences, 2018, vol. 111, no. 3, p. 523–536

    Large benthic foraminifera are important components of tropical shallow water carbonates. Their structure, developed to host algal symbionts, can be extremely elaborate and presents stratigraphically-significant evolutionary patterns. Therefore their distribution is important in biostratigraphy, especially in the Indo-Pacific area. To provide a reliable age model for two intervals of IODP...
