This study investigates which combination of environmental factors most strongly influences the distribution patterns of benthic foraminferal tests (>0.63 µm) in a region bisected by the Subtropical Front, east of New Zealand. Seafloor sample sites extend from outer shelf (90 m) to abyssal (4700 m) depths, across substrates ranging from biogenic/terrigenous gravelly sand to hemipelagic mud, and occur under the influence of Antarctic intermediate water (AAIW) and circumpolar deep waters as well as receiving detritus...
