Rapid growth of deep-sea benthic foraminifera

Journal Article

Buliminella tenuata and Nonionella stella from a coastal upwelling region showed abundance changes reflecting rapid growth of these taxa over a three month interval. Rapid growth indicates that the chemical composition of the calcareous foraminiferal test, which is used extensively in paleoceanography, may reflect environmental conditions over a relatively short interval (months). -from Authors
