      The name Foraminifera is derived from a combination of Latin and Greek terms meaning "bearing pores or holes" and the surface of most foram shells are covered with microscopic holes visible at about 40x magnifications. If you are lucky, you may find larger greenish or grayish-green foraminiferans about a quarter of an inch in diameter.   In , Dujardin recognised foraminifera as protozoa and shortly afterwards d’Orbigny produced the first classification. Early data on deep-sea benthic foraminifera (and on other deep-sea groups) were collected on the Challenger Expedition and E. Hackel also included forams in his master work “Kunstformen der Natur”.

Foraminifera are very small sea organisms that create calcium carbonate (CaCO3) shells to protect themselves. When they make their shells, they incorporate oxygen from the ocean, which contains both 16 O and 18 O, and as a result, scientists can use foraminifera shells to obtain delta-O values and to determine the ocean temperature at the time of the shell's creation.

      Foraminiferida (informally foraminifera, foraminiferans, forams (pl.); foraminiferid, foraminifer, foraminiferan, foram (sing.); phylum Rhizopoda) Order (in some classifications, subclass Foraminifera) of testate, amoeboid protozoa in which the cell is protected by a test, consisting of one to many chambers, whose structure and composition is of great importance in foraminifera classification. Planktic foraminifera have become increasingly important biostratigraphic tools, especially as petroleum exploration has extended to offshore environments of increasing depths. The first and last occurrence of distinctive "marker species" from the Cretaceous to Recent (particularly during the Upper Cretaceous) has allowed the development of a.

Foraminiferan, any unicellular organism of the rhizopodan order Foraminiferida (formerly Foraminifera), characterized by long, fine pseudopodia that extend from a uninucleated or multinucleated cytoplasmic body encased within a test, or shell.

Introduction to the Foraminifera. Foraminifera (forams for short) are single-celled protists with shells. Their shells are also referred to as tests because in some forms the protoplasm covers the exterior of the shell.

The shells are commonly divided into chambers which are added during growth, though the simplest forms are open tubes or hollow spheres.foraminifera (Str ong a,b), the fauna comprises by far the most diverse (72 species) and well-preser ved yet r ecorded fr om the Southern Hemisphere and is comparable with the best faunas.Program may be obtained from michael[at]; Dec., Micropaleo-Booth and talks on foraminifera at fair Mineralien Hamburg, in Hamburg Messehallen ( visitors in ), Germany.
