Abdulsamad, Esam O., and Barbieri, Roberto, Foraminiferal distribution and palaeoecological interpretation of the Eocene-Miocene carbonates at Al Jabal al Akhdar (northeast Libya).—Journal of Micropalaeontology, v. 18, 1999, p. 45–65, 5 figures, 5 plates.—“. . .This study of the biostratigraphy and depositional environments has been augmented by an analysis of the microfacies and of matrix-free foraminiferal assemblages. The biotic contents of the microfacies provide a good tool for correlation with the Letter classification developed from the Indo-Pacific region. The palaeoecological significance of the biota has been evaluated by comparison with the ecological requirements of their present day counterparts. Limitations for the palaeoecological interpretations are mainly due to the inadequate relationships with existing ecological data sets and to some local bias in fossil recovery because of some unfavourable lithologies. . .” (From abs.)
Akimoto, Kazumi, and Torii, Masayuki, Distribution of Recent benthic foraminiferal assemblages in the surface sediments of the Hyuganada area, off Kyushu and Shikoku, Japan.—Bulletin of the Geological Survey of Japan, v. 47, no. 1, 1996, p. 41–59, 12 figures, 4 tables.—“The distribution of Recent benthic foraminiferal faunas is discussed with reference to different oceanographic conditions. Recent benthic foraminiferal assemblages from 33 sediment samples were obtained during the GH83-2 Cruise (Hyuganada area). Based on the Q-mode factor analysis of the distribution of benthic foraminifera, from including 33 sediment samples, eight assemblages were recognized. …
