Taxonomic notes on the abyssal agglutinated benthic foraminifera of the HEBBLE area (lower Nova Scotian Continental Rise)
Kaminski, Michael A.
MetadataShow full item record
Eighty species and morphological varieties of agglutinated benthic foraminifera were identified in sediments from the HEBBLE Site (4800 m depth) and the HEBBLE Shallow Site (4185 m) on the lower Nova Scotian Continental Rise. Details of their morphology and classification are included in descriptions of each species, and representative specimens are illustrated using SEM, light microscopy, and X-radiography.

Impact of intentionally injected carbon dioxide hydrate on deep-sea benthic foraminiferal survival Bernhard, Joan M.; Barry, James P.; Buck, Kurt R.; Starczak, Victoria R. (2008-10)Sequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the ocean is being considered as a feasible mechanism to mitigate the alarming rate in its atmospheric rise. Little is known, however, about how the resulting hypercapnia and ocean ...
An endobiont-bearing allogromiid from the Santa Barbara Basin : implications for the early diversification of foraminifera Bernhard, Joan M.; Habura, Andrea; Bowser, Samuel S. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-07-19)Our current understanding of paleoecology and paleoceanography is largely based on the superb Phanerozoic fossil record of foraminiferan protists. The early history of the group is unresolved, however, because basal ...
Comparison of two methods to identify live benthic foraminifera : a test between Rose Bengal and CellTracker Green with implications for stable isotope paleoreconstructions Bernhard, Joan M.; Ostermann, Dorinda R.; Williams, David S.; Blanks, Jessica K. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-12-01)The conventional method to distinguish live from dead benthic foraminifers uses Rose Bengal, a stain that reacts with both live and dead cytoplasm. CellTracker Green CMFDA is a fluorogenic probe causing live cells to ...
