520    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the 
       taxonomy, biology, sedimentation, and carbonate 
       geochemistry of modern species. Students, early career and
       advanced scientists alike will profit from a broad 
       synthesis of the current understanding of planktic 
       foraminifers as an ecological indicator, biogeochemical 
       factories, and proxies in paleoceanography. The 
       classification of modern species is amply illustrated with
       electron and light microscope images of morphotypes, 
       addresses the state-of-the-art of molecular genetics of 
       species, and provides a detailed guide for any laboratory 
       analyses. The biology of planktic foraminifers is 
       extensively discussed in chapters dedicated to the 
       cellular ultrastructure, nutrition, symbionts, 
       reproduction, ontogeny, and test architecture. Building on
       the biological prerequisites, the distribution of planktic
       foraminifers is discussed at regional to global scale. The
       geochemistry and sedimentation of tests are considered in 
       relation to the ecology of the living animal. In the final
       chapter, which examines the most common methods in 
       planktic foraminifer research, hands-on information is 
       provided on sampling, processing and analyzing samples in 
       the laboratory, as well as selected established methods 
       for data interpretation. The various topics discussed in 
       this book are aimed at the application of planktic 
       foraminifers as sensitive indicators of the changing 
       climate and marine environment.
