Stable isotope ratios of benthic and planktonic foraminifera from Miocene to Pliocene sediments of DSDP Hole 7-62A on the Eauripik Rise, Pacific Ocean (Table 1), supplement to: Resig, Johanna M; Kroopnick, Peter M (1983): Isotopic and distributional evidence of a planktonic habitat for the foraminiferal genus Streptochilus Brönnimann and Resig, 1971. Marine Micropaleontology, 8(3), 235-248

Johanna M Resig & Peter M Kroopnick
Oxygen and carbon isotope analyses show that the biserial forarniniferal genus Streptochilus, which was originally described from pelagic sediments on the Eauripik Rise and Ontong Java Plateau, lived deep in the upper water column within the oxygen minimum layer. The species of Streptochilus average from 4 to 19% of the foraminiferal assemblages in which benthic forms compose less than 1 or 2%. Specimens of Streptochilus are selectively dissolved when in contact with the bottom water...
