The rotating foraminifer at the start of the video is Stensioeina beccarriformis (the holotype from White, 1928), which became extinct at the start of the Paleocene/Eocene Thermal maximum. In this video we explore the growth of foraminifera in trochospiral (Cibicides fletcheri) and triserial (Uvigerina peregrina) forms, both from the Pleistocene in California (Timms Point, Galloway & Wisler 1927), a collection at the American Museum of Natural History, NY. The CT scans used to make the video were made using the scan at AMNH, funded by NSF grant 1203394.
