Miocene deep-sea sediments from ODP Site 744 (Kerguelen Plateau, southern Indian Ocean) contain abundant and diverse planktonic foraminiferal assemblages. Their analysis led to the identification of the interval between 17.0 and 14.2 Ma as a time of mid-Miocene warmth, which is investigated here in detail. This investigation includes reconstruction of trends in foraminiferal faunal composition and diversity through time, as well as in morphology and coiling direction within Globorotalia praescitula and Globorotalia zealandica plexi.
