Ganssen, Gerald M. So called "vital effects", a collective noun for a suite of physiological and metabolic induced variability, in oxygen (δ<sup>18</sup>O) and carbon (δ<sup>13</sup>C) isotope ratios of planktonic foraminifer shells hamper precise quantitative reconstruction of past ocean parameters. Correction for potential isotopic offsets from the equilibrium or the expected value is paramount, as too is the ability to define a comparable life-stage for each species that allows for direct comparison. Past research has focused upon finding a specific size range for individual species in lieu of other identifiable features, that allow ocean parameters from a particular constant (i.e. a specific depth or season) to be reconstructed. Single shell isotope analysis of fossil shells from a mid-latitude North Atlantic Ocean piston-core covering Termination III (200 to 250 kyr) highlight the advantage of using a dynamic size range in studies of palaeoclimate. Using this methodology, we show that isotopic offsets between specimens in successive size fractions of G. inflata and G. truncatulinoides are not constant over time, contrary to previous findings. For δ<sup>18</sup>O in smaller sized globorotalids it is suggested that the offset from other size fractions may reflect a shallower habitat in an early ontogenetic stage. A reduction in the difference between small and large specimens of G. inflata between insolation minima and maxima is interpreted to relate to a prolonged period of reduced water column stratification. For the shallow dwelling species G. bulloides no size isotope difference between size fractions is observed, and the variability in the oxygen isotopic values are shown to correlate well with the seasonal insolation patterns. As such, patterns in oxygen isotope variability of fossil populations may be used successfully for reconstruction of past seasonality changes. Feldmeijer, Wouter Peeters, Frank J. C.
