Globigerinita glutinata (Egger, 1895)

The relationships of relative abundance and physical parameters resemble those of G. bulloides in their bimodality and their broad range (Fig. 13, compare Fig. 8). Globigerinita glutinata is equally abundant under "warm" and "cold" conditions and is more common in the North Atlantic. The species is most abundant in higher latitudes and adjacent to upwelling zones and may occur in a late stage of the bloom succession and at the margins of productive areas (see discussion section).
