Access data
Archived data

Biodiversity data of the modern foraminifera in the New Zealand EEZ sourced from Dr Bruce Hayward at Geomarine Research. These data come from two projects: (1) modern deep-sea (100-5000 m water depth) foraminifera; and (2) a 7 year project (1991-1998) on the biodiversity and ecological distribution of modern brackish and shallow-water (0-100 m) foraminifera around New Zealand.
