Miocene–Pleistocene planktic foraminifers from D. S. D. P. Sites 208 and 77, and phylogeny and classification of Cenozoic species

Fordham, Barry G.


Rich assemblages of tropical and subtropical planktic foraminifers from two coarsely sampled upper-Cenozoic deep-sea sequences suggest the need for changes in taxonomic method with a corresponding reclassification which includes all Cenozoic species. This is necessitated by the observation that representative collections of assemblages from phylogenetic lineages exhibit unexpectedly high degrees of variation in test morphology both within assemblages and through sequences of assemblages, and so...[Show more]
