K. SIVA KUMAR K.J. ANAND, T. GANGAIMANI, S. JEEVANANDAM AND V. KUMAR

Abstract

Benthic foraminifera traditionally have been used as a stratigraphic tool and as a paleo ecological indicator. The utilization of benthic foraminifera in the modern environment is increasing to investigate their response to pollution and environmental modification for the past few decades. The present article aims to review of the abnormalities noted on the morphology of foraminifera, which are caused by ecology and pollution parameters by several authors in different publication. This article is not including all the works that discuss the morphological deformities carried out so far, but a review of some of those important studies, which will be much helpful for those involved in pollution and environmental modification research
