Recent benthic foraminifera of the Scotia Sea and Argentine Basin, supplement to: Harloff, Joachim; Mackensen, Andreas (1997): Recent benthic foraminiferal associations and ecology of the Scotia Sea and Argentine Basin. Marine Micropaleontology, 31(1-2), 1-29

Joachim Harloff & Andreas Mackensen
We investigated 88 surface sediment samples taken with a multiple corer from the southwestern South Atlantic Ocean for their live (Rose Bengal stained) and dead benthic foraminiferal content. Using Q-Mode Principal Component Analysis six live and six dead associations are differentiated. Live and dead association distributions correspond fairly well; differences are mainly caused by downslope transport and selective test destruction. In addition, four potential fossil associations are calculated from the dead data set after removal...
