Chapter 3 Planktonic Heterotrophs 31 depend­ing on the species, but calcite, or cemented particles of sand, silt grains, or sponge spicules (Chapter 5), are common. Most tests are multichambered and superficially ­similar in appear­ance to a snail shell. The lightweight, fragile test and abundant spines increase the surface area-tovolume ratio and, therefore, help planktonic species remain buoyant within the photic (phot—light) zone. Forams contain two different types of nuclei, similar to ciliates.

The first is the oxygen gradient, which gets more and more anaerobic toward the bottom. As a result, obligate aerobes, microaerophiles, facultative anaerobes, and obligate anaerobes are found in different locations in the column. The second is the H2S gradient, which runs opposite in direction to the A Plastic wrap B Air Aerobic zone Water O2 gradient. The third factor is the diffuse light shined upon the column. This promotes growth of phototrophic organisms at levels in the column where they are adapted to the opposing O2 and H2S gradients.
