Biology of Foraminifera
Intended for marine biology and oceanography departments, and museums of natural history/geology/paleontology departments, this book provides a multidisciplinary perspective on all aspects of the science of living fossil foraminifera. These provide a source of information for cell and molecular biological research, as well as classical biological and geological investigations. The foraminiferas are important in assessing the history of the earth, monitoring ecosystems and predicting the impact of human activity on the dynamics of our natural environment.
