Marshall Islands - Marshall Islands - History: The Marshall Islands were settled initially around the beginning of the Christian era by Micronesians who may have been influenced by early Polynesian (Lapita) culture.

Radiocarbon dates from earth-oven charcoal samples that were excavated in Laura village on Majuro yielded dates of about 30 bce and 50 ce. 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.

and Elphidium crispum. Ωcalc foraminifera. The response of foraminifera to the combined impact of low pH and desalination was species-specific. Introduction: Foraminifera are testate, single-celled eukaryotic, protozoan’s and are one of the most abundant microfossils found in marine sediments and other depositional settings.

It is important to study foraminifera because they are used in biostratigraphy to date rocks and also to reconstruct past environments e.g. they have been used to show periods of glaciation throughout.
