Abstract

This chapter presents some of the provisional results of ongoing work on the strati-graphic and palaeoenvironmental significance of benthonic foraminifera from the Pleistocene– Holocene of the British Isles. Palaeoenvironmental interpretation of the Pleistocene to Sub-Recent Holocene sediments of these islands has been undertaken using Recent benthonic foraminiferal (bathymetric and biogeographic) distribution data as a proxy.

Supplementary material: Summaries of the stratigraphic distributions of selected species in the Pleistocene–sub-Recent Holocene of the British Isles and of the proxy Recent benthonic forami-niferal environmental distribution data used in our palaeoenvironmental interpretations are given in tabular form at: http://www.geolsoc.org.uk/SUP18420.
