Morphotype analysis of deep-sea benthic foraminifera from the northwest Gulf of Mexico

Journal Article (Journal Article)

An analysis of benthic foraminiferal morphotypes, based on test shape, mode of coiling and presence or absence of surface pores, was carried out on benthic foraminiferal data collected from the Gulf of Mexico. The morphotypes show distinct depth patterns and are used to determine the depth distribution of foraminiferal microhabitats in the Gulf of Mexico. -from Authors
