Radiolaria in the Sediments from the Northwest Pacific and its Marginal Seas,As a newest research result, this book shows the radiolarian species descriptions and their phylogenetic systematics in the high latitude areas of the northwestern Pacific, recording a total of 42 Families, 152 Genus and 397 species/subspecies of Spumellaria and Nassellaria, most of them belong to new records in this area and 21 new species were established. Total 85 plates provide cleared photo pictures of all 397 radiolarian species, which were arranged in sequence according to the order in species descriptions. In this book, we have first analysed the biogeographic features of modern radiolaria in the Bering Sea, the Sea of Okhotsk, the Japan Sea, the East China Sea, the Philippine Sea and the South China Sea. Referring to the Circulation system and the western boundary currents (Kuroshio and Oyashio) in the North Pacific, influence factors of marine dynamic environments to ecological conditions in the marginal seas of different latitude were discussed, illustration the likeness and otherness betweeen different marginal seas and explaining their relations. Furthermore, the biostratigraphy and age framework of the Bering Sea since Pliocene have been established, and the evolutions of paleoceanography, character events and their responses to the global climatic changes were also revealed by radiolarian analysis.
