Evidence is presented in support of a relationship between certain species of coccolithophorids derived from selected samples of two Pleistocene deep-sea cores and the associated sea-water paleotemperatures. An explanation is given for the observed fact that a greater variety of species is found in samples from core levels deposited during cold (glacial) periods. Identifications of the most characteristic species are included.
