Summary
Abstract: New faunal and floral records from Ocean Drilling Project Hole 963A, resolved
at ~80-year spacing, provide evidence of suborbital scale climate variability
in the central Mediterranean Sea throughout Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 5. Cold
events in the central Mediterranean Sea, indicated by low abundances of warm
species and high abundances of cold species, are also evident in a planktonic
