Both the planktonic and benthonic
foraminifera have recorded rapid evolution, making one of the favorite fossil group for biostratigraphic dating of marine sediments (Berggren et al.
Total five Genera and eight age diagnostic species of large benthonic

Various chemical fractions of some benthonic
invertebrates, such as the social ascidian Ecteinascidia turbinata, present in the Mediter-ranean and tropical Atlantic, have given good results, in tests in vivo, against sarcoma 180.
The major fossil-producing organisms for this type of research have been the foraminifera, single-celled animals with planktonic (floating) and benthonic
