Stable-isotope analysis of two species of benthic foraminifers (Planulina wuellerstorfi and Globocassidulina subglobosa) and one planktonic species (Globigerina bulloides) from DSDP Site 606 reveals the evolution of late Pliocene climate change. No 'stepwise' increase is evident in the delta18O record at 3.2 Ma, but events of 18O-enrichment of increasing magnitude occurred at 3.1, 2.7, 2.6, and 2.4 Ma. The two youngest events are correlated with events indicating glaciation at northeast Atlantic DSDP Hole 552A (Shackleton...
