Get this from a library! Cenozoic planktonic foraminiferal zonation and characteristics of index forms: appendix. [R M Stainforth;]. This chapter provides the taxonomic description of the most important benthonic and planktonic foraminifera species recorded in the Cenozoic Niger Delta wells studied. The diagnostic characteristics of each species are described in considerable details and the morphological characters, which distinguish each species from the morphologically similar and chronostratigraphically contemporaneous forms.

We incorporate these developments and amendments into the existing biostratigraphic zonal scheme. In this paper we present an amended low-latitude (tropical and subtropical) Cenozoic planktonic foraminiferal zonation.

Halbouty Building, Department of Geology and Geophysics, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX Benthic foraminifera are more resistant to dissolution and are often found in upper bathyal, lower abyssal, and higher latitude sediments which contain impoverished planktonic faunas.

Planktic foraminifera are one-called animals (Protista, Order Foraminiferida Superfamily Globigerinacea) that inhabit the pelagic realm of the oceans.

A possible title considered for this textbook was The Geological Uses of Foraminifera’.
