We reviewed the paleoceanographic application of the carbon isotope composition of planktic foraminifera. Major controls on the distribution of d13C of dissolved CO2 (d13CSCO2) in the modern ocean are photosynthesis-respiration cycle, isotopic fractionation during air-sea exchange, and circulation. The carbon isotope composition of surface waters is not recorded without perturbations by planktic foraminifera. Besides d13CSCO2 of the surrounding seawater, the d13C composition of planktic foraminifera is affected by vital effects, the water depth of calcification...
