This study will delve further into the ability of the foraminifers to survive significantly disruptive events by going dormant. Specifically, I will attempt to determine if any foraminifers are capable of transitioning to and from dormancy when subjected to hypoxic conditions for one month’s time. I hypothesize that more taxa than those outlined above are able to survive sudden hypoxia for at least four weeks’ time through a temporary dormancy mechanism.
