Juni Pengamatan foraminifera dilakukan di wilayah sekitar Teluk Jakarta mulai dari pesisir sampai perairan laut terbuka. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan terdapat perbedaan komposisi jenis pada foraminifera yang terdapat di daerah muara, teluk dan laut terbuka, serta munculnya abnormalitas pada morfologi cangkang Ammonia beccarii. Perbedaan komposisi jenis serta kemunculan cangkang abnormal ini merupakan respon foraminifera terhadap pengaruh beberapa faktor lingkungan.

Introduction ; Walton and Sloan, ; Haynes, ; Buzas et al. Ammonia tan species dwelling in littoral and neritic environ- beccarii s. It has been extensively studied in various ronmental and geological studies because of its great aspects, such as, geographic distribution, ecology, abundance, wide geographic distribution, and long biology, life-cycles, morphology, structure, and en- duration since the Miocene.

Most recently, micro- vironmental applications from all over the world habitat and DNA studies of A. Fax: C33 ; E-mail: Debenay et al.

Over 20 taxa species, subspecies and varieties , with close affinities to A. Schnitker suggested that many of them including Ammonia tepida are ecophenotypes and so junior synonyms of A. Poag , Wang and Lutze , Jorissen , and Walton and Sloan ac- cept this opinion, considering that the occurrence of the morphotypes and their geographical distribution may be related to climate, temperature and salinity Poag, or to food availability, feeding strategy, oxygen concentration and sediment type Jorissen, Haynes suggested that the A.

Views View Edit History. While several different forms exist, many authors consider the genus to consist of a single species, Ammonia beccariiwith many amonia. Ammonia is a genus of marine foraminifers. Nautilus beccarii Linnaeus Based on a comparison between molecular results and morphology, the following species appear to be valid:.


Ammonia tepida (Cushman, 1926)

This clade can be further divided in three subclades. Kiel Fjord Elphidium belong to two of these subclades and were identified morphologically as the subspecies E. Introduction Ammonia and Elphidium are the two most abundant benthic foraminiferal genera worldwide Murray Elphidium species occur from tropical to polar regions and from the intertidal zones to the continental slope Murray
