Stratigraphic assemblages of Quaternary through early Eocene benthic foraminifers were recovered among 10 Peru margin drill sites. Various hiatuses and intervals barren in foraminifers characterize the sections, but numerous samples contain abundant, well-preserved benthic foraminifers.Bathymetry of the extant species and California-based estimates of the paleobathymetry of the extinct species permit recognition of Quaternary sea-level fluctuations between shelf and upper bathyal depths that produced vertical migrations of oxygenated and low-oxygen habitats at the six shallow sites....
