During three to four d18O cycles (determined on Globigerinoides ruber), more positive d18O (= higher global ice volume) values correlated with higher Globorotalia menardii percentages, total numbers of benthic foraminifers, number of benthic foraminifer species, and the percent of total foraminifers composed of benthic foraminifers. During the same intervals, barite and insoluble residues also generally recorded higher values; however, there was no clear evidence of systematic variation in cadmium/calcium ratios (in benthic foraminifers). Maximum percentages...
