Among many foraminiferans
with an organic shell, they found four undescribed specimens with agglutinated tests.
1998), benthic foraminiferans
in Chesapeake Bay sediment cores (Karlsen et al.
He established the age of the undifferentiated formation as middle to late Miocene, based upon benthic foraminiferans
9817[degrees]E), -51 m, sandy mud with astrorhizid foraminiferans
, dredged NMDP, RV Meiring Naude, st'n P7, 19.
In every sample, there are tens of thousands of protists, including amoebae, ciliates, foraminiferans
, flagellates, and dinoflagellates.
Other acid-resistant microfossils encountered during this study include acritarchs, foraminiferans
, melanoscleritoids, chitinous hydroids, and graptolite siculae, but these were not studied quantitatively.
Monitoring bioremediation after oil spills, old and new, using marsh foraminiferans
, harpacticoids, ostracods, and macroalgal debris represented food items that potentially could be browsed within shelters.
