Response of deep-sea benthonic foraminifera to development of psychrosphere near Eocene/ Oligocene boundary.

Journal Article

Benthic foraminifera in 15 closely spaced sediment samples were examined. Biostratigraphic ranges for 41 taxa are shown in a figure. A majority of the species show no response to the inferred temperature change; only two faunal changes conicided with the psychrosphere development.-from Current Antarctic Literature
