Abstract
    The distribution of Recent planktonic Foraminifera in the surface sediments of the Flores, Lombok and Savu Basins has been studied, based on box-core samples obtained during the Snellius-II Expedition. The planktonic foraminiferal assemblages are different in the Flores Basin and the Lombok and Savu Basins, and the distribution of the most abundant species is discussed. In the Flores Basin Neogloboquadrina dutertrei is dominant followed by Globorotalia menardii, Pulleniatina obliquiloculata s.l. , Hastigerina siphonifera and Globigerina bulloides. The Lombok and Savu Basins are characterized by the dominant species Globorotalia menardii, which is associated with Pulleniatina obliquiloculata, Globigerinoides ruber and Globorotalia tumida. These different distribution patterns and abundances of planktonic foraminiferal species are discussed in the light of differences in oceanography and dissolution effects (lysocline/CCD).
