benthic foraminifera as proxies in pollution studies
What is it about?
this work want to show how modifications in benthic foraminifera assemblages are useful to understand the state of quality in coastal marine environments with a certain degree of pollution
Why is it important?
in this paper we show how benthic foraminifera can be usefull to evaluate the degree of pollution of a marine coastal area
