foraminifera that characterizes the upper bathyal zone (200-500m) are reported by several workers i.e.
As for the benthic foraminifera, hyaline taxa dominate the assemblages (80%), agglutinated
taxa are common, and porcelaneous taxa are rare.
foraminifers, conularids, bryozoans and sponge spicules are present.
Living populations are not discussed because thick-walled agglutinated
species do not reveal their stained protoplasm body without being crushed.
Plasma and mucous extracts from Mytilus edulis agglutinated
horse erythrocytes with comparable intensities (5.0 [+ or -] 0.3, 4.0 [+ or -] 0.1, and 4.5 [+ or -] 0.1, respectively), whereas no agglutination was found in the ASW control (Fig.
"The Challenger Deep is an extreme environment for agglutinated
foraminifera, which construct their tests from a wide range of particles cemented together by calcareous or organic matter," said Gooday.
The spermatozoa were agglutinated
in a head-to-head manner, which invariably makes them fail to fertilize the egg as reported by Mochida and Takahashi 1993.
Flowers with a 4-5 mm long pedicel, opening during the day; sepals narrowly elliptic, acute, 15-16 mm long, connate 4-5 mm, very thin-coriaceous, nerved, the adaxial pair carinate, sparsely pale punctate-lepidote; corolla erect with spreading to recoiling lobes; petals lingulate, broadly acute, 33-37 mm long, agglutinated
for 10-15 mm, bright yellow.
Indicators of marine influence include high sulphur coals bracketing coastal plain strata (Hacquebard and Donaldson 1969), agglutinated
foraminifera (Wightman et al 1994), glaucony (Batson and Gibling 2002), and acritarchs (T.K.
Sometimes they were successful, but sometimes when recipient and donor bloods mingled, rather than flowing together the blood cells agglutinated
or "clumped." The "clumping" typically caused shock and jaundice and was usually fatal.
In the first experiment, the agglutination degree of sorghum starch was evaluated (3x4), and in the second, in vitro digestibility was measured including also the effect of grain process (agglutinated
and ground; 3x4x2).
