AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO FJORD FORAMINIFERA FROM THE SEYMOUR-BELIZE INLET COMPLEX, NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
Detailed taxonomic descriptions and illustrations of 94 foraminiferal species found in the Seymour-Belize Inlet Complex (SBIC), a fjord network situated on the north coast of British Columbia, are presented as an aid to future researchers. This treatment includes a few planktic foraminiferal taxa that
were carried into the SBIC from the open ocean. In addition,
ten freshwater thecamoebian species that were washed into the inlet from the nearby adjacent shore are also described.
