This paper reports the results of a detailed analysis of 25 Miocene Pacific Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP), sites at which 110 benthic foraminiferal species in 255 DSDP samples were quantified. The sites range in depth from 1.5 to 4.5 km between 45 degrees north and south latitudes. The faunal distributions were studied for many Pacific Ocean sites at different water depths through time; diagrams depicting both areal and water depth distributions are presented.

Miocene deep-sea benthic foraminifera form clear distribution patterns. Some species appear to have reacted to changes in water mass quality; others appear to reflect changes in...
