Data from: Test flattening in the larger foraminifer Heterostegina depressa: predicting bathymetry from axial sections

Wolfgang Eder, Johann Hohenegger & Antonino Briguglio
Previous attempts to quantify the test flattening trend in Heterostegina depressa with water depth have been rather unsuccessful. Due to its broad depth distribution, H. depressa is a perfect model species to calibrate test flattening as a bathymetric signal for fossil assemblages. This might enable us to better reconstruct palaeoenvironments of fossil larger foraminiferal communities or even provide clues on the degree of transport in allochthonous deposits. In this study we used growth-independent functions to...
